Philipp Grubauer, who has been “remarkably chill” as both an elite back-up goalie and street hockey forward, tried to played a last game of pick-up street hockey in front of the White House before heading to Colorado.
The Secret Service, which was awaiting the vice president’s motorcade, shut the game down. So the goalie put on a street clinic for the kids instead.

BTW those are my photos and my son – Grubi played with him for 10+ minutes while we waited. Such an awesome guy!

Grubauer is now headed to Colorado for the first season of his three-year, $3.33 contract with the Avalanche.
They’re getting a great player, and a great guy.
