The news about Braden Holtby’s pet preferences first broke in October 2018. The Stanley Cup Champion, Vezina-winner, guitar-playing crooner said that while his teammates were dog people, he chose to own a tortoise.
In a piece on “Capitals Quirkiness” for Washington Life Magazine, Catharine Trifiletti spoke with some of the players about hidden talents, fun facts, and favorite things.
Holtby’s fave was his pet Leopard tortoise. And it has a name: Honey.
