Washington Capitals defenseman Karl Alzner's got some dance moves and they're coming at you hot and fast.

Alzner cut a rug in a commercial for a local Italian food chain, Paisano's Pizza, with other Washington-area sports figures. The ad debuted Monday night, and he at least gets an A for effort.

Watch: Alzner shows off dance moves

Alzner's big moment comes after Ryan Kerrigan, Chris Baker and Pierre Garçon from the Washington Redskins and former Washington Wizards center Gheorghe Muresan devour some pizza.

The most spirited dancer of the bunch, Alzner busts out what appears to be his take on the Carlton dance, made famous on the "Fresh Prince of Bel-Air" TV show.

Can't go wrong with a classic.
