Sometimes I think Washington Capitals players are aware of inside jokes on Caps Twitter. Why? Because it sure seems like they were inspired by one that was started by fans after Connor McMichael was drafted by the team.
Let me explain. Sunday, during Capitals Breakdown Day, Alex Ovechkin spoke about some of the team’s prospects that he was impressed with.
“We can see how young guys step up this year through all the injuries,” Ovechkin said. “It’s good for us, McJesus (Connor McMichael), Ax (Axel Jonsson-Fjallby), they’re growing up and they will help us for next year for sure.”
