Several Capitals players have come out in recent days to share their support for the Black Lives Matter movement and Garnet Hathaway became the latest on Tuesday. He took to Twitter to share his thoughts saying he promised to "be a better ally to the Black Community."
Other Caps who have taken to social media with their thoughts have been Alex Ovechkin, Braden Holtby and John Carlson, among others. There were also several players and members of the organization who took part in a video released by the team on Monday in support of Black Lives Matter. That video features Ted Leonsis, Brian MacLellan and Todd Reirden.
Hathaway -- a native of Kennebunkport, Maine -- is in his first season with the Capitals.
