The Washington Capitals’ team pup, Captain, has spent the last two years accepting your pets and putting smiles on faces at Capital One Arena and MedStar Capitals Iceplex. But that was all training for a bigger purpose.
On Wednesday, the Capitals announced that Captain officially completed his schooling and has been paired with a local US veteran, retired U.S. Marine Corps Master Sgt. Mark Gwathmey.
The two were recently introduced at the team’s practice facility and took pictures together.
