John Walton

Play By Play

Prior to joining the Capitals, Walton was the Senior Manager of Communications for Washington's American Hockey League affiliate in Hershey, where he called the action for the Bears for nine seasons. He called his 1,000th AHL broadcast on Jan. 26, 2011 against Springfield at Giant Center.

Walton called three Calder Cup championship seasons for the Bears, in 2006, 2009 and 2010, and on several occasions called the play-by-play for Hershey's postseason games on NHL Network and Comcast SportsNet Mid-Atlantic. He also served in an on-air role, alongside Mike "Doc" Emrick and Comcast SportsNet's Craig Laughlin, for the 2011 AHL All-Star Classic, televised to a national audience.

In addition to hockey, Walton served as the public address announcer for the Cincinnati Reds from 1996-2002 at Riverfront Stadium/Cinergy Field. He announced over 500 Major League Baseball games during his time in the Queen City, including the 1999 one-game playoff between the Reds and the New York Mets. During his time in Cincinnati, he was also the first play-by-play voice of the AHL's Cincinnati Mighty Ducks from 1997-2000 and also served as a sports anchor for WLW-AM 700 in Cincinnati.

Walton began his hockey play-by-play career at Miami University in Oxford, Ohio, where he was the Voice of the Redskins from 1994 - 1996, and also announced football and basketball at WRBI-FM 103.9 in Batesville, Indiana during that time. In addition to sports, Walton was also a disc jockey at 97 X, WOXY-FM in Oxford, a station recognized by Rolling Stone Magazine four times in the 1990's as one of the magazine's "15 Best Radio Stations".

Ken Sabourin


Drafted by Calgary in the second round (33rd overall) of the 1984 Entry Draft, Sabourin continued his hockey involvement following his playing career by serving as an analyst for the Sunshine Network's coverage of the now-defunct Orlando Solar Bears of the International Hockey League. He remains active in area youth hockey and with the Capitals alumni group.

Ben Raby


Away from the rink, Raby is a sports anchor with WTOP and an associate producer with CSN MidAtlantic. He is also a correspondent for and the Associated Press.

Raby began his broadcasting career in Montreal with a four-year stint at The Team 990 primarily covering the CFL's Alouettes and later hosting the Canadiens weekend postgame shows. His broadcasting experience also includes time as a television sports reporter at CTV Montreal and as a writer and story editor for TSN's Sportscentre.

Raby earned a Master's Degree in Broadcast Journalism from the S.I. Newhouse School at Syracuse University and a Bachelor's Degree in Journalism from Concordia University in Montreal. The Montreal native has an unhealthy obsession with the 1994 Expos and would like to see Major League Baseball someday return to his hometown.
