Elliot Segal glares as Alex Ovechkin high-fives an invisible child.
The second annual Caps Convention was held this past Saturday at the Washington Convention Center. Along with the entire Washington Capitals roster, a number of prominent alumni made appearances, including Olie Kolzig, Peter Bondra, Yvon Labre, and Rod Langway. Fans got to meet and greet their favorite players, get autographs, and demand “Happy Birthday” be sung to them.
The event was a tremendous success. RMNB’s own Neil Greenberg was there to document the day. Enjoy!
