The Capitals had maybe the coolest addition to their lineup on Sunday afternoon. (No, Nate Schmidt isn’t back.) A special young man named William Cody joined the team as a forward, donning number 37.
Cody is a 14-year-old cancer patient who signed a three-day contract with the Capitals through the Make-a-Wish foundation. After a whirlwind weekend with the contract signing and practicing with the team, Sunday was finally the day Cody took the ice as a member of the team.
