ARLINGTON, Va. – The 2015-16 Washington Capitals team visited young patients at MedStar Georgetown University Hospital on Tuesday, Dec. 15.

Players divided into four groups and spread holiday wishes to children who are either hospitalized or receiving out-patient treatment for serious illnesses including cancer.

They distributed blankets to children through the NHL’s The Biggest Assist Happens Off the Ice™ social responsibility program, passed out Capitals Kids Club kits that were provided by Capitals fans through the team’s Kids Club kit donation program and handed out hats collected as part of the Capitals recent hat drive with Ellie’s Hats.

In addition they also participated in arts and crafts projects with patients.
