Capitals players Jay Beagle and Matt Niskanen participated in a Show Your Soft Side photoshoot with their dogs at Kettler Capitals Iceplex in November. Beagle participated with his shepherd mix, Sam, and Niskanen participated with his golden retrievers, Griffin and Homer.
Show Your Soft Side
is a Baltimore, Md., based public service campaign that was created to change the mindset of young people who all-too-often view the maiming and torturing of defenseless cats and dogs as a sign of “toughness” or “manhood.”
The images will be used in outdoor advertising as well as on digital media and school posters.
