Current and former Capitals teammates say really nice things about Nicklas Backstrom
The Washington Capitals went all out to celebrate Nicklas Backstrom’s 1,000th NHL game on Thursday.
The team formed a stick tunnel for Backstrom to skate out to, players wore number 19 jerseys during warmups, and the organization held a pregame ceremony which included a touching tribute video.
The Capitals also debuted a splash page on their website dedicated to all things N1KY, including 20 sweet video messages from Nicky’s past and former teammates and coaches.
We transcribed them all and also dug out a few more tributes from social media.
