Happy Birthday Brett Leonhardt!

(Born in Kitchener, ON, Canada)

Brett Leonhardt (aka "Stretch" due to his 6'7'' frame) is one of the hardest working people in DC.  He is the Website Producer for the Washington Capitals and the man behind the fun and informative videos on Caps 365.

Brett even got a call up for the Capitals! He was a goaltender in college so sometimes is on the ice as a goalie for practices. On December 12, 2008, Jose Theodore suffered a hip flexor injury and recalled Varlamov from Hershey, however, the Bears were in San Antonio. Varly wasn't able to get to DC by game time so Brett dressed in #80 and spent ten minutes on the bench as the back-up goalie to starter Brent Johnson!

You can read about Stretch's dream come true in his own words, and our game story from that night with an exclusive quote from Stretch.

And sometimes he multi-tasks.
