Washington Capitals goaltender Braden Holtby and his wife, Brandi, were among the marchers in the 2016 Capital Pride Parade on Saturday.

They marched alongside Slapshot, the Capitals' mascot, members of the Monumental Sports and Entertainment staff and other area sports groups, in conjunction with the You Can Play Project, an organization dedicated to ensuring equality, respect and safety for all athletes, coaches and fans, without regard to sexual orientation and/or gender identity.

Holtby, a 2016 Vezina Trophy finalist, tied an NHL record with 48 wins during the regular season. He had a 2.20 goals-against average, his best since taking over as Washington's starting goaltender in 2012-13.
