Wait, are the Arizona State Sun Devils rooting for the Capitals in their game against the Arizona Coyotes tonight?

Wait, are the Arizona State Sun Devils rooting for the Capitals in their game against the Arizona Coyotes tonight?

The Washington Capitals received an unexpected gift during their morning practice on Thursday. While on the ice at Mullett Arena, Capitals head coach Peter Laviolette called his team to the bench where a player from the Arizona Sun Devils hockey team has something to say.

The Capitals will face the Arizona Coyotes at the college arena at 9 p.m. tonight. The Coyotes share the venue with the Sun Devils.

Thanks for the welcome gift, @SunDevilHockey, and good looks 🤩#ALLCAPS x #ForksUp pic.twitter.com/YN3QQNpvEs

“I’m a huge Caps fan,” said the player, wearing an Alex Ovechkin jersey. I’m a bit old now compared to when I was a kid, but it’s great to meet you and see you play. Win tonight, huh boys? »

Then he offered a souvenir to the team.

“It’s a stick for you guys signed by our team. Everyone on the team. It’s an ASU Gold Stick, so all for you.

“How do we register?” a Capitals player responded. “Thanks dude.”

The way I interpret both the video and the text on social media is that the player and the entire ASU team are supporting the Capitals tonight, which is odd since they share an arena with the Coyotes and Arizona is their home team. The Caps didn’t thank the individual player who told them to “get the win”, they thanked the entire varsity hockey team.

If the Sun Devils hockey team really supports the Caps, it’s the latest indignity for a Coyotes team that plays in front of 5,000 fans a night, has lost 9 of 10 games overall, shares a face-off circle with ASU and has tiny locker rooms.

The Sun Devil responded on social media to the Capitals with both a comment – “Glad to have you at the Mullett” – and with a registration link.

Glad to have you at the Mullett. Here is this registration link 😉 https://t.co/Gj3IvZ6rVh

Wait, did I just get scammed to promote a sponsored post for free? They got me?

I am so confused by all of this. But hey, there’s at least one thing we can all take away from this: we all love Caps.

Update: The Arizona Coyotes basically called traitors to the ASU college hockey team on Twitter.

Alexa, play “Traitor” by Olivia Rodrigo. @SunDevilHockey 😕
