We already knew that the Capitals’ team dog, Captain, was a superstar. But the super-stardom was taken to new heights after Captain got his own feature on CBS Evening News.
The video features quick interviews with Nic Dowd and Captain’s trainer Dina Stone. Of course, there is also plenty of cute Captain content while he chases around a puck on the ice and meets some fans.

Introduced as “the new ‘top dog’ with the Washington Capitals,” Captain is shown being his goofy self and giving some love to players.
Chip Reid had a moment to chat with Nic Dowd and mentions, “You’re a guy that slams people into the boards, but here you are kissing on the pup!” Dowd responds with some laughter and said, “Yeah, and I think a lot of our players would be like this.”
As mentioned previously, Captain is training to become a service dog and will eventually be paired with a veteran or a first responder.
Chip Reid had the opportunity to ask Dina Stone if the players getting slammed into the boards or pucks flying off the glass ever bothers Captain. Stone replied, “It doesn’t, I’ve had several startles myself with things ricocheting off the glass and he’s trottin’ along like, ‘no big deal'”.
Reid closes out by mentioning to Stone that Captain is going to change a life. “He’s absolutely going to change a life,” Stone confirms.
He’s already changed ours with the daily dose of cuteness. We love you, Captain!
