Sonny Milano’s hair has a new fan.
After Sonny showed up to team photo day with a huge mop on his head, former Capital Justin Williams tweeted his appreciation.
Sonny Milano has been a success in DC after a curious offseason where no one wanted to sign him. Milano responded by scoring 32 points (11g, 21a) in 59 games. The Capitals rewarded Sonny with a three-year contract extension.
Not only did Sonny bring offense to Washington, but he also brought a signature style to the team. Milano has large, poofy hair that makes him resemble the famous Ogie Ogilthorpe character from Slap Shot.
Sunday, during TNT’s nationally-televised game between the Capitals and New York Rangers, Tarik El-Bashir explained how Sonny ended up with his Big Poof.
Axel Jonsson-Fjallby was little known in NHL circles before this season. But now, with Carl Hagelin out, AJF is getting his first unabated chance to show off his skills in the NHL. The Swedish forward is a fast, defensive-minded forward who can penalty kill and finish in the offensive zone. He’s been a natural on the fourth line and recently scored his first NHL goal.
But no analysis of Jonsson-Fjallby is complete without praise of his incredible hair, which could be the best in the NHL. AJF’s flow is so cabbage-y and delightful that it has even got admiration from his teammates.
Such as on Friday, when Alex Ovechkin and Tom Wilson got very very excited when they found a fan in the tunnel.
Monday, the Washington Capitals visited the White House to celebrate their Stanley Cup championship with President Donald Trump.
No matter where you stand on the political spectrum, you likely had the same internal dialogue I had when I first saw photos and video from the event: WHAT THE HECK IS GOING ON WITH OVI’S HAIR??
Is that a… side part?
Alex Ovechkin broke another record with his hat trick against the Detroit Red Wings Tuesday night. During a segment on NBC Sports afterward, Mike Milbury said he thinks Ovechkin “is the best goal scorer that ever laced on a pair of skates.”
Mike Milbury actually said that. Yes, that Mike Milbury.
The same guy who “just doesn’t like Russians.” The same guy who had the Blue Jackets winning the 2018 Stanley Cup. The same guy who said Ovechkin was “just a one-dimensional player” because all he does is score goals.
The video of the segment, the transcript of Milbury’s Ovechkin comments, and sweet sweet long-overdue justice are below.
The Capitals’ morning skate left us with more questions than answers. Why is Chandler Stephenson here? Will Karl Alzner ever play again? And What is that thing on Andre Burakovsky’s face?
Yes, everyone’s favorite Swedish cinnamon roll cut his hair and he’s also trying to grow a playoff beard.

When the Washington Capitals took their team photo in late March, we finally captured, in all its wild glory, Justin Williams’ beautiful and luxurious hair. Teased high into the air, Williams’ salad puffed out like Ogie Ogilthorpe’s in Slapshot.

Hockey players and their flow go together like oil and vinegar — great until the mixture separates, which is almost exactly what Tom Wilson‘s hair did from his scalp on Tuesday night.
In a brutal fight against the Los Angeles Kings’ Luke Schenn, Willy Baby made sure to get the last punch in while the fans wondered if they had, in fact, seen Tom Wilson’s hair come to life and try to escape his head.

If you’re looking for a symbol that articulates the Washington Capitals 2012-13 season, look no further than Mike Green‘s hair on breakdown day. Green, looking as if he just rolled out of bed, sported a massive mohawk, every hair follicle seemingly unsure which direction it wanted to point towards. The mohawk then flowed tidily into a well-kempt beard.
You know you love it. (Photo credit: @HockeyBroph)
A few weeks ago, I wrote a post titled Ovi’s Bad Hair Day, Holtby’s Bad Poke Check, and Ten More Weird Photos From Caps/Lightning. The headline photo of that article was just a screen capture of Alex Ovechkin chilling on the Capitals bench with his hair looking all whackadoo as if he had just jammed his fingers into an outlet.
Thanks to some brilliant GIF magic from ovechkins on tumblr, we now know how Ovi actually got that crazy hair.
