Tuesday morning, seven-year-old Seth Parrish waited patiently in the lobby of the players’ entrance at Kettler Capitals Iceplex.
A few minutes later, he was surprised by TJ Oshie. The Caps winger and Sochi hero presented the tiny tot with a number 12 Caps home jersey. Seth’s last name emblazoned on the back.
That morning, Seth’s mother told her son that they were going to watch Caps practice. His day would be a bit more hands on than that.
