Nicklas Backstrom is afraid of dogs, which is why they always give him puppies for the Canine Calendar photoshoot.
Fun fact – Backstrom is afraid of dogs, but not puppies! @WARL brought Hamlin just for Nicklas… And Nicklas almost took him home!

Backstrom keeps careful watch as his daughter says hello to this dangerous beast.
Tom Wilson doesn’t have a dog, but he does foster puppies. Here he is cuddling some cold puppies at the MedStar Iceplex.
(Need more? Okay, fine, here’s more Tom Wilson with puppies.)
Never take your eyes of Evgeny Kuznetzov, whether he’s on the ice making plays, or in the background of an interview making faces at puppies.

He may not be a puppy anymore, but no Capitals canine coverage would be complete without the best boy of them all: the Ovechkin’s dog Blake.
If you want to support the Capitals’ chosen animal rescue organization, you can adopt, foster, volunteer, and donate to Homeward Trails.
Could Casey be the dog for you? He’s looking for his forever home and you can come meet him today at our Adoption Center from 10:00 to 4:00! Casey & many other pups there can’t wait to meet you! @homewardtrailsrescue #adoptdontshop #adoptme #boxermix #stbernardmix
