Washington Capitals captain Alex Ovechkin won”t forget his dinner date with this cute little girl, and neither will she.
Ann Schaab is a 10-year-old with Down Syndrome. She loves hockey…and I mean REALLY loves it. After a skating session with the Capitals player organized by the American Special Hockey Association, she skated over to Ovechkin and asked him out on a sushi date. The hockey star said yes.
Watch the video below of her special day as she gets to be a VIP guest at a preseason game before their “date.”
If you aren”t a Washington Capitals fan, or a big Ovechkin fan, I imagine he still earned your respect after watching this. Who knew hockey players could be such nice guys on and off the ice?
