NBC Sports Washington’s Joe Beninati is going to need to buy a new china cabinet because he can’t stop winning trophies.
The popular play-by-play announcer took home two Emmys for his superb working calling Washington Capitals games.
“Saturday night @CapitalEmmys turned out to be two times the fun!” Beninati wrote on Twitter. “I am very grateful to work closely with so many talented people connected to @NBCSWashington and the @Capitals. They give us great stories to describe every year and 2018 was obviously special!”

Beninati’s partner in crime, Craig Laughlin, also received an Emmy for his work as color commentator that night.
Other Capitals-related Emmy victories include Monumental Sports And Entertainment’s production of All Ours for Best Sports – One Time Special. You can view the hour-long special here.
NBC 4 Washington also won two Emmys for its Stanley Cup championship coverage including Best Team Coverage and Best Newscast – Morning.
Two of the Emmy winners for Best Team Coverage, Danny Favret and Heather McDonough, are excellent producers and hockey fans who are friends of the site. We could not be more thrilled for them.
