The Capitals show their softer side
Capitals center Jay Beagle may be rough on the ice, but today he showed his softer side.
"You can be a strong man and not abuse animals because it is not right," Beagle said.
Beagle and his 8-year-old rescue dog Sam took part in the "Show Your Soft Side" public service campaign to show compassion towards animals is a strength and not a weakness.
"When you hear of the abuse that has taken place with animals, it is something that we believe needs to be brought to light," said Beagles.
The two were also featured in the 2018 Caps Canine calendar which is available now for $20 all proceeds benefit the Homeward Trails Animal Rescue.
