Reminder: Toys for Tots

"The Washington Capitals are teaming up with Comcast SportsNet, Elliot in the Morning and the Marine Corps Reserve to host their ninth annual Toys for Tots campaign beginning Dec. 12 when the Capitals host the Ottawa Senators at Verizon Center.

Fans are encouraged to bring a new, unwrapped toy to the F Street entrance of Verizon Center where players’ wives and girlfriends will be helping Marines collect donated toys prior to the game. The first 2,000 fans that bring a toy will receive a free poster featuring Capitals forward and toy drive spokesman Alex Ovechkin.

“We have great fans who have helped make this event a success in the past and I’m proud and excited to be a part of the Toys for Tots Toy Drive this year,” said Ovechkin. “We can really help thousands of local children this holiday season.”

The Capitals, Comcast SportsNet, Elliot in the Morning and the Marine Corps Reserves are challenging fans to fill a box truck with toys, all of which will be displayed on F Street."

Some great toy ideas...

Alex Ovechkin poseable action figure.

Sean Avery edition "Sloppy Second" Barbie. Comes with six-game suspension!

Classic Teddy Bear, softer than a Nylander body-check.


  1. You know, teddies noses and eyes are pretty hard... And that list should include a classic Cap player
