ARLINGTON, VA. –The Washington Capitals have teamed up with Clyde’s of Gallery Place, Comcast SportsNet and MIX 107.3 to host Hockey ’n Heels on Monday, Feb. 25, from 6:15-10 p.m. at Verizon Center.

Members of the Caps coaching staff and broadcast team will also be in attendance at the event, alongside Comcast SportNet on-air personalities and MIX 107.3’s Chilli Amar. The night’s festivities wrap-up when Caps players host a mix-and-mingle cocktail party, featuring signature drinks and specialty hors d’oeuvres at Clyde’s of Gallery Place.
