Last week, the Capitals put forward Devante Smith-Pelly on waivers. Smith-Pelly went unclaimed and will likely play his first game for the AHL Hershey Bears this evening against the Hartford Wolfpack.
DSP’s time with the Capitals wasn’t long, signing the summer before the 2017-18 season after the New Jersey Devils bought him out. But in that short time, Smith-Pelly’s impact on his teammates, his contributions during the playoffs, and his work in the community have endeared him to DC forever.
Here are some of the best moments from Stanley Cup Champion Devante Smith-Pelly’s time with the Washington Capitals–with the hope that there are more moments to come in this year’s postseason.
