Keelan Moxley melted our hearts during the Capitals’ Stanley Cup run. Friday, the adorable seven-year-old returned to Capital One Arena to participate as a mite-on-ice.
“She obviously had a great time but was really nervous to skate on the same ice as the Caps,” Keelan’s dad Andrew Moxley told me.
Keelan first gained fame during Game Two of the Capitals’ first-round series against the Columbus Blue Jackets. In a viral video, Capitals forward Brett Connolly tried, tried, and tried again to get a warmup puck to Keelan. Connolly became infuriated as a parent gave the pucks he intended to Keelan to two other boys.
