While our president focuses on trying to close down the borders, the NHL has been opening its own, celebrating Hockey Is For Everyone month during February.
On Sunday, the Washington Capitals flew in amazing stickhandler, Fatima Al Ali, from the UAE. Monday night, Fatima watched an instant classic between the Washington Wizards and Cleveland Cavaliers at Verizon Center. After meeting with the UAE’s ambassador Tuesday afternoon, Fatima took in the Caps-Canes game that night from her glass-side tickets. She’d even joined Ted Leonsis in the Owner’s Box for a bit.
After the game, Fatima would meet her favorite player Alex Ovechkin in the locker room. She was very excited.

So great that tonight Fatima Al Ali, a hockey player from the UAE, got to meet her favorite hockey player @aleksandrovechkinofficial! The #Caps and @etihadairways brought Fatima to Washington, D.C. as part of their #HockeyIsForEveryone initiatives this year. Tomorrow Fatima will skate with the team after practice. #CapsHIFE
