It’s that time of the year! Once again, the Capitals have ditched their normal teammates to pair up with some adorable puppies in the 2017 Capitals Canine Calendar which is available for purchase starting Friday.
This year’s pictures were taken by Taylor Winnik, wife of Capitals forward Daniel Winnik, and feature historic locations around Washington.
All proceeds from the calendars will go to Homeward Trails Animal Rescue, a nonprofit organization that seeks to find permanent homes in D.C., Maryland and Virginia for dogs and cats from high-kill shelters. The team helped raise over $114,000 with the calendars since 2014.
This year’s calendar will be available for purchase at the MSE Foundation table located at section 104 in Verizon Center at Friday’s game against the Detroit Red Wings. It will also be available at team stores at Verizon Center, Kettler Capitals Iceplex and through the team’s website.
