Once a month from January through April, Caps fans and ESPN Zone guests will compete to go head-to-head with a Washington Capitals player in the ESPN Zone’s “NHL Tonight” interactive hockey game. January’s participating Caps player will be Ben Clymer.
The winner, in addition to getting to compete with a Caps player, will also receive ESPN Zone VIP status for a night. Runners-up will also receive prizes. How to Participate: Guests will be selected to participate in one of the following ways:
• ESPN Zone MVP Club members will receive an email at the beginning of each month, asking them to email back in 50 words or less why they are the Capitals’ biggest fans and should get to play. Two winners will be selected as finalists, and invited back to compete in the playoff at ESPN Zone the night of the player’s appearance. To sign up as an ESPN Zone MVP Club member, click HERE
• On the night of the player’s appearance, the participating Capitals player will choose the two guests who he thinks are the biggest Capitals fans. The two winners will be finalists.
Each of the four finalists will compete against each other. The winner of the fan playoff will go head-to-head with the Capitals player. The winner will receive ESPN Zone VIP status, receiving a certificate to come have dinner either in the green room or in the Zone Thrones.
If any fan beats the Capitals player, they will win a set of tickets, or another prize package.
All finalists will meet the Capitals player and receive prizes. Additional giveaways will be on hand for other guests.
