During Marcus Johansson‘s first game in DC after being traded in the offseason, the Capitals played a tribute video during an early TV timeout. The video, honoring Johansson’s seven seasons and 102 goals in Washington, brought Capital One Arena to their feet with a standing ovation.

The tribute video features clips from Johansson’s time playing for the Capitals including his first NHL goal, multiple amazing plays, hospital visits, and a nice big old smooch from Andrew Gordon.
Still melts my heart, that adorable pass from mojo. Good times. Kiss worthy. https://t.co/uAm4aMrd4j

Johansson played 501 games through seven seasons as a Washington Capital. He was traded to the New Jersey Devils in July in a salary dump move.
At the end of the video, Caps PA announcer Wes Johnson invited the crowd to welcome Johansson back. The fans did just that.
