Christmas time is here.
In the days leading up to December 25th, CSN Mid-Atlantic will be providing you a look at the Christmas past and present of your favorite Capitals players with our "12 Days of Capitals" series.
On the 8th Day of Capitals, CSN gave to me... Karl Alzner ghosts of Christmas past and present!
Defenseman Karl Alzner and his wife Mandy sent us some awesome pictures of the defenseman past and present.
The 28-year-old has spent his entire NHL career in the Washington, D.C. area and has logged a bevy of new holiday memories to go along with the ones from his past, growing up in Burnaby, British Columbia, Canada.
As a tiny tot he is enjoying Santa and his family.
Alzner is a congenial guy, always happy to chat and share a story.
Even when he was a young budding hockey player, he didn't mind the obligatory pictures by the Christmas tree!
Mandy is the creative one in the family, as evidenced by her production of the Caps Canine Calendar each year.
She went all out for this family Christmas photo, Karl, Mandy and Stella in matching pajamas and decorated in lights.
We love it!
