Stanley Cup champion Washington Capitals to visit the White House

The HillThe Washington Capitals will go to the White House on Monday to celebrate their Stanley Cup championship with President Trump, according to spokesmen for the team and the White House. 

The event, which was first reported by The Washington Post, has not yet been officially announced.

While several other title-winning sports teams have been disinvited from or declined to attend White House celebrations, that has not been the case for National Hockey League champions.

Seeing Ovechkin and the President together will be hilarious. That’s the only Russian collusion you’ll find!

In all seriousness, looking forward to Trump pretending like he knows or cares about the NHL champs. We’ll see how he does.

Last year he did a solid job pumping the tires of Sidney Crosby, Evgeni Malkin, and Phil Kessel.

By the way, just ask Trump – he IS a hockey fan!
