In the most important news the Washington Capitals' players could release today, Tom Wilson and his girlfriend, Taylor Pischke, appear to have a new dog. 

"First family photo," wrote Pischke wrote on Instagram. "This is Halle. 8 week old black lab mix from @wolftrapanimalrescue. Her favorite things are pine cones and digging holes.  #furparents #adoptdontshop"

Pischke also posted photos in her Instagram stories of Halle sprawled out, belly up, on a couch and enjoying the outdoors. Despite not having met Halle, NBC Sports Washington is prepared to pronounce her a very good girl. 

It is also not yet clear if Halle has met Captain or Scout, but we're hoping for that to come soon.
