There’s a storied history between hockey players and cute dogs, whether it’s Joe Juneau’s hockey card or David Backes saving the strays of Sochi from Putin’s canine death squads or the Washington Capitals’ annual players and pups calendar, shooting now.  

But all of those are irrelevant now because OMG ANZE KOPITAR BEING TACKLED BY A POOCH!


This is Gustl, who is Kopitar’s golden doodle. You may remember him from his appearance with Kopitar, eating from a tiny Stanley Cup. 

Now … well, he’s basically a dog-sized Stanley Cup in his dad’s arms. All the feels…
