Inova Blood Donor Services held a blood drive at MedStar Capitals Iceplex on Saturday morning. Donors who gave blood received a Nick Jensen Capitals bobblehead.
Fans also got an opportunity to get autographs and take photos with Nick Jensen himself, who made a surprise appearance thrilling Capitals fans who were there.
Jenner Jensen, Nick’s wife, first tipped off Caps fans by posting a video on her Instagram Story of her husband at the Iceplex greeting donors.
“I was on my way out and someone from Inova said, ‘Hey, there’s no line if you want Nick to sign your bobblehead,'” reader Heather Coburn said in a message. “He was very nice, but doesn’t think his hair is as red as the bobblehead’s. His wife took the photo and got several angles for best light. They were both lovely.”
Heather shared these two photos with us.
“They do take walk-ins today so encourage people to come by,” she said.
During his time at the rink, Jensen also donated blood himself.
Nick Jensen is here at Medstar and is donating to the INOVA Blood Drive … probably wants his own bobblehead…. 🤣🤣🤣🤣😁

The Capitals acquired the top-four defenseman from the Detroit Red Wings for Madison Bowey at the trade deadline. Jensen immediately signed a four-year contract extension hours later keeping him in DC through 2024.
