Washington Capitals forward Daniel Winnik celebrates two milestones today. First, March 6th is Winnik’s 32nd birthday.
Second, Winnik, according to Ben Raby, will skate in his 700th career game Monday night against Dallas (if Barry Trotz gives him a jersey). This is very significant. Winnik, the 265th overall pick of the 2004 NHL Draft, will become only the eighth player from that draft class to reach that threshold.
To show our appreciation, we wanted to give the unheralded forward a gift he may never have been bestowed before: his very own t-shirt.
