The Washington Mystics victory tour continued at Capital One Arena Wednesday night as the WNBA Champions were honored throughout the Capitals vs. Maple Leafs game. 

WNBA MVP and Mystics superstar Elena Della Donne took part in several pregame activities with the team. 

She met with the Capitals coaching staff prior to game start to see which names she would be reading off as the starting lineup in the locker room.

Tweet from @Capitals: That time when 2019 MVP and @WNBA Champion @De11eDonne called out the lines for the game! #ALLCAPS #TogetherDC @WashMystics

She then took part in a ceremonial puck drop at center ice with captains Alex Ovechkin and John Tavares, and of course did a spectular job.

Tweet from @WashMystics: Like her foul shot, perfect form.#ALLCAPS #TogetherDC

During intermission, Mystics forward Aerial Powers rode the Leidos ice cutter and she brought the WNBA Championship Trophy along for the ride. 

Tweet from @aerial_powers23: So thankful to have been honored at the Washington @capitals game tonight!!! DC you have truly made this my home! Let���s take it all the way AGAIN!! 🏆🔥

It was a great night for the District of Champions and clearly they brought the Capitals some good luck so they might have to come to every home game from now on...
