While Bryce Harper may have wore an Alex Tuch VGK jersey during the ceremonial puck drop, he didn’t forget his roots to Washington, DC.
Harper, who also wore an old school Washington hat, praised Braden Holtby on social media.
Harper, who congratulated Holtby on his 200th win in November, snapped a photo of the Holtbeast during warmups.
“The man! The myth! The legend! 🔥” Harper wrote in his Instagram story.
Harper has attended two Caps playoff games over the last three years, but has become a hockey fanatic while supporting his hometown team in its inaugural season.
