The Washington Capitals are the 12th-worst team in the NHL and could take some figurative TNT to their roster over the next two weeks. So let’s turn our attention to one of the very best teams in the American Hockey League, the Hershey Bears, who may supply some players to the Capitals’ roster in the coming weeks.
The Bears were asked an interesting question from their social media team: Who is the most famous person in your phone, and do they pick up if you call them?
Some answered seriously and others joked around. The video is a good barometer of how many likable characters the team has.

A. (Hershey Bears captain) Dylan McIlrath. I don’t think he’d pick up though.
A. Elon Musk. I talked to him yesterday.
A. Ray Bourque. Anddddddddd… maybe?? I think. I hope?
A. My brother. Hopefully, he’ll pick up.
A. Uhhhhh. Probably be Connor McMichael. And no he wouldn’t answer because he’s right there. [points]
A. Oh! Pheonix Copley.
A. Connor McMichael! He’ll answer on the first ring.
A. (Assistant coach) Patrick Wellar and he would not answer.
A. Riley Sutter and he would answer me for sure.
A. [taking it very seriously] Tom Wilson. And maybe?? I’m not sure.
Assitant coach Nick Bootland
A. Brad Larsen, Columbus head coach. Yes, I believe he would answer!
A. Aaron Ness. And I think he would pick up, yeah!
A. Tyler Landman (Ness’s friend back home). Yeah, he’d answer.
A. Probably, Sgarbs (Mike “SCOARbossa” Sgarbossa). And he wouldn’t answer me either.
A. Him. [Points to Mike Vecchione.] He’s an All-Star. [Kyle Mace asks: Does he pick up?] Never!
A. I’d have to say Keith Yandle. Uh? He probably doesn’t even know I have his number, but I shared the ice with him once!! [big smile] Does he pick up? No chance.
A. Probably Willie Desjardins (his junior coach) back home. Most likely.
A. Oskari Koivunen. (RMNB’s best guess.) He’s a big-time stud from Finland! (They played two years together at HIFK and HJK.)
A. Most famous person is Henrik Rybinski (his roommate) and I think he’d answer.
A. Tim Stützle (they’re both German). And I think so yeah.
A. Hendrix Lapierre (his roommate).
A. Henrik Rybinski (his roomate). And I think so. I hope he will.
