Technically this event is in the fall, but either way, the 2013 Capitals Convention is a unique opportunity for fans to interact with the entire squad.
This year, the convention will be held at the Washington Convention Center Sept. 21, the day after the team's first preseason game.
Every player will be available for autographs, as will a host of former Capitals greats, and with the event running all day, there will be ample opportunity to meet virtually every star in attendance.
Per the press release on the team's website, here's a quick look at some of the other main attractions of the convention.
The all-day event will feature the entire 2013-2014 Capitals team as well as Capitals alumni, who along with radio and TV personalities, coaches and team executives will participate in a variety of panel discussions that will give fans a look at behind-the-scenes operations as well as an insight into the lives of NHL players. There also will be interactive activities for adults and children, a display containing many of the NHL’s most prominent trophies, posed pictures and much more.
The event is sure to be packed, especially after last year's edition of the convention was cancelled due to uncertainty surrounding the new collective bargaining agreement, so fans will want to purchase tickets as early as possible.
