Go get it! Good boy!

A golden retriever got loose onto the ice and played fetch with a puck before the Washington Capitals vs. Arizona Coyotes game at Verizon Center on Saturday.

Our hero maintains an exceptional ability to stay on his feet, even though running at full speed from end to end. The man throwing the puck for him nearly slipped at the end, and he is wearing boots and doesn't go nearly as far as the dog.

We'd bet his favorite player is Capitals forward Jay Beagle.
