University of North Dakota Police jump-start Shane Gersich’s truck after forward returns from Stanley Cup run with Capitals
Shane Gersich signed an entry-level contract with the Washington Capitals on March 23, 2018, leaving the University of North Dakota after his junior year.
In a whirlwind three months, the rookie forward played in his first NHL game, tallied his first NHL point, and suited up in two NHL playoff games as the Capitals went on to capture their franchise’s first ever Stanley Cup.
After the Championship Parade was done and the celebrating in DC ended, Gersich returned back to UND area where he was greeted with a problem. His truck, not operated in nearly 90 days, would not start.
That’s when UND Police came to the rescue.
