Pheonix Copley got a little extra workout Monday, but it wasn’t between the pipes.
The Capitals’ goaltender spent some time with the students of Hendley Elementary School in DC, leading them through stretches and exercises.
Power Up DC is a monthly physical fitness initiative established by former Washington Wizard Awvee Storey in 2015. The program encourages kids to live an active, healthy lifestyle through exercise and features a guest athlete each month to teach and inspire the kids.

Copley also led the kids in a floor hockey clinic.
Previously, Nicklas Backstrom, Braden Holtby, and Tom Wilson visited Hendley to donate tablets and laptops to their classrooms. MSE Foundation is partnered with Hendley through DC Public Schools’ Adopt-a-School program.
