The morning after their 1-0 shutout against the Detroit Red Wings, the Caps hosted a family skate after practice. The players were able to bring their little ones onto the ice for some quality ice time.
Such as Evgeny Kuznetsov, who pulled his full-grown man child Alex Ovechkin, around the rink in a boy’s sled.
This is ridiculous.

Later, Kuznetsov would get his actual daughter Ecenia onto the ice. Ecenia got to meet Harlow Orpik.
Ecenia, cradling a teddy bear, got a lap around the rink on her papa’s shoulder.

As for the rest of the team, Nicklas Backstrom skated his new son Vince around the ice.
Marcus Johansson pulled his daughter Mila around the ice.
Karl Alzner holds baby Anson while mom holds Stella.

Super baby Chorney!
Naturally, Nate Schmidt is in the middle of the mess making sure the kids are happy. Looks like he’s with little Lyla Oshie, while her dad takes it easy after his injury.
One big family photo, complete with total chaos.
Ovi made sure to put his arm around Nolan Trotz.
