Children’s Wish Recipient Tosses Steve Ott Out of Ceremonial Faceoff
This weekend the Washington Capitals hosted the Children’s Wish Foundation of Canada, where they fulfilled the wish of 8-year-old Saskatoon, Saskatchewan resident Braden Nienaber by letting him hang out with the team.

The Capitals also let Braden lead a ceremonial puck drop on Sunday when they hosted the Sabres — and he didn’t mess around. Prior to dropping the puck, Braden tossed Buffalo forward Steve Ott from the faceoff in one adorable motion.
This could have been a good-natured prank, but I like to believe Braden was just fully aware of Ott’s past faceoff behavior and wasn’t going to stand for it.
