Caps Summertime Fun

The best photos from the Capitals offseason activities

The Capitals wrapped up their 2020-21 season a little over three and a half months ago and will be taking the ice once again for training camp later this month to embark on a new season. 

As the offseason rolls to a close, let's take a look back at what our guys have been up to this summer: 

Engagements galore! Caps forwards Anthony Mantha and Tom Wilson, as well as Caps goalie Vitek Vanecek popped the question to their girlfriends this summer, capturing the moments on all three of their Instagrams. 

Speaking of rings, Trevor van Riemsdyk tied the knot with his fiancée Annie in a beautiful ceremony in Newport, Rhode Island in July.

Caps dads with their kids on the ice was a huge theme this summer. T.J. Oshie and Nic Dowd took their sons skating for the first time and Alex Ovechkin practiced one-timers with Sergei from the office.

Dmitry Orlov celebrated his 30th birthday in Russia with a huge party that included his family and friends as well current and former teammates. Ovi reunited with a familiar friend, Alexander Semin at the celebration.

Orlov's trainer also posted a video to his Instagram of Ovi as well as other party attendees huddled around Orlov at his party for an entertaining dance circle. 

More firsts for the bunch as Michal Kempny's son Adam took his first dip in the pool this summer and Carl Hagelin's newest son Tage experienced his first Swedish Midsummer. 


John Carlson and family hit the road to head down south to 'The Happiest Place on Earth' back in June.

Now it's back to our regularly scheduled on-ice action!
