Today on the TXHT Jersey Share series we take a look back at this really cool jersey that was worn for the 2012 Capitals Clinic which was won at a Caps Care Auction by my friends Mark Whiting and John Stortz.
So first off I want to start by expressing my gratitude to both Mark and John for allowing me to be a part of this, and all of the great memories that have come from it. Being able to be on the ice with defenseman Dennis Wideman, forwards Mathieu Perreault and Marcus Johansson, goaltender Michal Neuvirth, and assistant coach Jim Johnson and learning from them, and being able to work on my game was just an amazing moment.
Top two moments overall were getting tripped by Perreault in board battle drills, and then working on net front battles as both a defenseman and forward with Johansson. Being able to work with Neuvirth, Johnson, and Wideman was really cool too, but I took the most from Johansson and Perreault as those are two big parts to my game as a player.
