Hockey may be a team sport, but players have found ways to individually express themselves. From Alex Ovechkin’s yellow skate laces to Braden Holtby’s fashion sense, the Capitals have been one of the NHL’s leading teams to allow their players to show off their personalities to fans.
The Capitals went a step further with it this season. The team debuted goal songs for every individual player. Superstars like Alex Ovechkin and Nicklas Backstrom either selected their tune or, according to the Washington Post’s Samantha Pell, the Caps’ game operations staff did so for them.
The result has been even more anticipation and joy for goals as well as more insight into individual players’ personalities.
Monday, the Washington Capitals released all the players’ goal songs (and a Spotify playlist to go with it).
