by Staff Writer / Washington Capitals
Last Saturday, hundreds of Washington Capitals fans joined Comcast SportsNet and SportsTalk 980 at Dave & Buster's in North Bethesda for the annual Washington Capitals Draft Day Party! Fans watched all the drama unfold in Vancouver, B.C. as the Capitals added players to their roster including the Caps top pick, Nicklas Backstrom. Fans had their own draft commentary provided by the Capitals "Ask the Pros" panel comprised of Comcast SportsNet personalities Joe Beninati and Joe Reekie and TEM radio play-by-play announcers Steve Kolbe and Ken Sabourin. The panel dished on the top prospects, fielded questions from fans and received live call-ins from NHL Rookie of the Year Alexander Ovechkin and the Caps first pick Nicklas Backstrom. Fans also had the opportunity to get autographs from former Caps and NHL Alumni including Rod Langway, Yvon Labre, Blair Stewart, Joe Reekie, Ken Sabourin and Mark Heaslip.
