Update: Alex is still recovering from multiple surgeries and has a long road ahead of him. Earlier this week the Stanley Cup went on a tour around the community where Alex got the opportunity to hang with the Cup. Below is a statement that his girlfriend, Rebecca provided WashCaps.com:
"He is very thankful to the doctors and nurses who have helped him so far. He is especially thankful to the Capitals organization and community for all they have done for him. Seeing the Cup was the happiest I've ever seen Alex. One of his dreams finally came true because he got to have an Ovi moment (laying in bed) with the Cup."
