On February 22, the United States women’s hockey team upset their arch-rival Canada in a shootout to win the gold medal at the 2018 Winter Olympics in Peyongchang, South Korea.
It was the first gold for the American women in 20 years, their last being in Nagano in 1998. American hockey fans across the county have spent the time since celebrating, and now the NHL has prepared a tribute for them as well.
The entire team will be on hand in Annapolis for the Capitals’ Stadium Series game against the Toronto Maple Leafs. During the second intermission, the team will be honored in a salute. Details of the exact content of the tribute are unknown at this time.
The salute will also be a hometown celebration for one member of the USWNT as well. Haley Skarupa hails from Rockville, MD and played for the Washington Pride. She was seen during the gold medal celebrations draped in a Maryland flag.
