CAPS: Happy Birthday, John Carlson

HAPPY 23rd BIRTHDAY JOHN CARLSON!

The Washington Capitals Defenseman was born on 01/10/1990 in Natick, MA, United States.

John Carlson (aka “Captain America”) has been very involved in the DC community during his time in DC, however, Carlson and other players weren’t able to be involved with the Caps during the lockout.

Last year, Carlson delivered holiday cheer to DC’s less fortunate and was the food drive spokesman.  He also grew a mustache for Movember and even guest bartended to raise money for the cause.

Follow Carlson on Twitter and wish #74 a happy birthday.
