CAPS: Hockey ‘n Heels Update

As previously announced on DSP Beyond the Game, Hockey ‘n Heels is back for a second time this season. The November event was a success so it is no surprise that the Monday, Jan. 23 event is SOLDOUT.









Details have been released for the event.

MIX 107.3 radio personality Chilli Amar will kick off the event, which runs from 6-9:15 p.m. with check-in beginning at 5:30 p.m. The annual event features instructional lessons and on-ice demonstrations targeted towards the Capitals’ female audience. Once again this year’s event was only open to members of Club Scarlet, the Capitals’ female fan club.

The evening will be divided into six sessions, with the popular on-ice demonstrations featuring instructions from Dmitry Orlov, Tomas Vokoun and Dennis Wideman. The two on-ice sessions will include the ladies learning how to shoot the puck with defensemen Orlov and Wideman, with Vokoun on the other end of the ice teaching the ladies how to stop the puck in the net.

The third session will be the picture station, a new addition to Hockey ‘n Heels this season. This event will feature Alexander Semin taking pictures with each Hockey ‘n Heels attendee. The photos will be emailed to the attendees after the event.

The fourth session will be a question and answer sit down with Caps assistant coach Jim Johnson and former Capital and Comcast SportsNet analyst Alan May. The two will discuss the rules of hockey and take questions from the group. The fifth session features Caps’ strength and conditioning coach Mark Nemish explaining to the ladies what fitness routines the players go through.

The sixth session will give the ladies a tour of the Capitals locker room courtesy of head equipment manager Brock Myles. During the tour Myles will explain the different equipment the players wear and how he arranges the locker room in order to get ready for a game. Have you ever wondered what type of flavor gum Mike Knuble likes? Myles knows. He has the inside scoop for the ladies.

All sessions and players are subject to change.
