Washington Capitals defenseman Dmitry Orlov made a surprise visit to the Mite/Squirt skills clinic today. The talented young player worked on his passing and shooting with our youngest Eagles. The normally all business clinic was buzzing with young hockey players showing off their best stuff for the pro.
Dmitry thrilled players like Squirt Blue Aidan Moon who after receiving a pass from the Caps blueliner, roofed the puck for a goal! When asked later about what it was like to shoot on Squirt Gold goalie Brody White, Dmitry commented "I think he read me pretty well. It was like he knew where I was going to shoot before I did".
Thank you to Dmitry and the Washington Capitals for the visit, and making the night special for kids who are putting in the extra time to become their best.
