Thirteen-year-old Will Altman brought a sign to Friday’s Capitals-Blue Jackets game. Will’s poster welcomed back TJ Oshie from injury and prefaced a trade: a warmup puck for a donut.
The sign played off Oshie’s well-documented love for donuts. In 2020, TJ won a donut bet with his daughter Leni after scoring a goal in 2020. Oshie has also served as a spokesman for Dunkin Donuts.
To get TJ’s attention during warmups, Will brought two plush donuts that he won from an Ocean City boardwalk game years ago. One of the stuffies he wore around his head. The other mini one he held in his hands ready to chuck over the boards.
With all the excitement during his first game back, Oshie missed seeing Will’s poster and donut offer.
