Since being introduced by the Capitals in September, Biscuit has been number one in our hearts. Now he’s the top dog in an ESPN ranking.
Tuesday, the Sports Leader released a top 10 list of the NHL’s top hockey dogs. Biscuit was first due to his versatility and overwhelming cute factor.
ESPN’s Erin Vail writes of Biscuit:
Biscuit truly has it all: good looks, a killer hockey name (“biscuit” being a nickname for the puck) and a strong start when it comes to team dog antics. Biscuit has been dishing out kisses, running on the ice, pumping iron, touring monuments, meeting his predecessor Captain and tweeting up a storm. We think Biscuit has a bright future in this league, and we can’t wait to see what he’ll do next.
A wide array of non-shallow qualitative traits were considered in the rankings including “cuteness to name to various puppy hijinks.”
yes good ranking !!

The Capitals first brought Biscuit into our lives on September 27. The team gave the then nine-week-old puppy its own Media Day where he took many staged photos.
He also had the chance to meet all his new frands on the Capitals.
Since then, Biscuit has been a regular at games and practices.

He bought his own merch to better rep the team (who gave him a credit card before he was one?).
