In a time where everything looks bleak, the Caps are still able to have fun. Forward Mikhail Grabovski found some free time to take his son, ‘lil Grabo, out onto the ice at Kettler after practice on April 12th.  The video is full of “awwws.” I highly recommend taking a look at it. You can view the full video here.
