Look out Braden Holtby and Ilya Samsonov, Ryan Zimmerman is coming for you!
The Capitals announced via Twitter Wednesday that a "surprise goalie" would be in net at practice. After some fan-submitted guesses, they revealed that guest would be "Mr. National" himself.
Skating onto the ice with a GoPro strapped to his helmet, Zim was greeted with cheers by the Caps.

Zim even made glove saves against Alex Ovechkin, so you could say he's pretty good.
