Hershey Bears captain Garrett Mitchell called up to the Capitals

Garrett is a familiar face to anyone who's cheered for the Hershey Bears over the past few years.   He's played over 350 games in the AHL.  This was his first call-up to the Capitals.   

Great experience for Garrett and his entire family.  Check out the highlights below:

Garrent ended up taking the opening faceoff after Nicklas Backstrom got INTENTIONALLY kicked out of the faceoff circle.   Quite a moment
