Caps Slapshot is a fun, good-natured mascot, who makes all of us smile. But Friday night at Capital One Arena, Slapshot took a dark turn.
During a stoppage in play before a face-off, in-arena cameras found the mascot propped up along the corner boards AND OH MY GOD GUYS THAT’S NOT A FUN-LOVING CLOWN.
RUN. RUN AS FAST AS YOU CAN.

Naturally, the internet had jokes.

Here’s the trailer of the Stephen King adaptation.
Let us hope our normal, kind, and totally-not-terrifying mascot returns Saturday night for the Capitals next home game.
