Karl Alzner was in the Capitals organization for a decade. The sturdy defenseman won two Calder Cups with the Hershey Bears, owns the Capitals all-time consecutive games streak, and was a member of all three of the Capitals Presidents’ Trophy-winning teams.
That’s why it’s totally bizarre to see the following photo. The Montreal Canadiens team store at Bell Center is already selling Alzner jersey t-shirts and… wait, what? He’s wearing number twenty-two?? This is just wrong on so many levels.
