MedStar Capitals Iceplex, the Washington Capitals’ practice facility, has been closed to the public since March 24 due to the coronavirus pandemic.
But Thursday, six members of the staff relaid the ice and re-painted the rink on the Capitals side. It’s another sign that hockey may be back soon.
“We don’t know when we will be allowed to reopen for skating activities but until then…,” the facility wrote on social media.
Over the last two days, the MCI Facebook has shared the ice’s progress via time-lapses.
