Former Capitals forward Zach Sanford held part of his Stanley Cup day at his former high school on Monday. The event was held at Pinkerton Academy in Derry, New Hampshire.
Sanford, a member of the academy’s graduating class of 2013, had 36 goals in 21 games during his final season with Pinkerton including 69 points (nice). He was later drafted in the second round of the 2013 NHL Draft by the Capitals.

After spending two years at Boston College, the Capitals signed Sanford to an entry-level contract. The checking-line forward only spent part of one season in Washington (51 games with Hershey and the Caps combined) before being dealt to the St. Louis Blues in exchange for Kevin Shattenkirk ahead of the 2017 trade deadline. Sanford had eight goals and 20 points in 60 games with the Blues during the 2018-19 season. The only goal he scored for the Blues in the playoffs was during Game Seven of the Stanley Cup Final.
Sanford also made headlines this summer after puking on himself during the Blues’ Stanley Cup Parade.
