ARLINGTON, Va. - Nominations are now open for the first annual Hath's Hero of the Year, created by Capitals forward Garnet Hathaway to honor a local first responder with a special Capitals and Hath's Heroes experience.

The Hath's Hero of the Year will receive four tickets to the Capitals March 31 game, a Hathaway jersey, Hath's Heroes pucks for all 4 guests, and a postgame meet and greet with Hathaway.

Hathaway launched Hath's Heroes in 2019 to provide tickets to Capitals games to local first responders. Postgame, Hathaway meets the ticket recipients and gives them a tour of the Capitals locker room. In addition to donating tickets, Hathaway visits local fire and police stations throughout the season and spends time with first responders. 

Hathaway's great-grandfather, Garnet Mcelroy, was a firefighter in Winnipeg, and his experiences inspired Hathaway to launch Hath's Heroes.
