Today, the Maryland Black Bears announced that Washington Capitals Legend Peter Bondra will make the ceremonial puck drop at the Black Bears’ Inaugural Washington Capitals Homecoming Night on January 19th at 7:45 PM. “Special Agent” Bondra spent 14 years with the Capitals and was a beloved Alternate Captain during his stint with the team. Bondra has kept close ties with the Capitals. In 2017, Monumental Sports hired the former Cap as director of alumni affairs and business development, president of business operations and chief commercial officer.
Bondra is no stranger to the Piney Orchard Ice Arena as it is the former practice facility of the Capitals until they moved to their new facility in Arlington, VA. The Maryland Black Bears Organization looks forward to welcoming back Peter Bondra to the Den. There will be a limited supply of In-Game Peter Bondra Experience Tickets available for purchase.
“It’s great to see the growth of hockey in the Maryland, Virginia, and DC area,” said Former Washington Capitals Legend Peter Bondra. “The NAHL is one of the top junior leagues in the US and the Maryland Black Bears are a positive addition to the local community. Coming back to Piney will bring back fond memories of my playing days with the Washington Capitals and it is an honor to participate in the Black Bears’ Inaugural Capitals Homecoming Night.”
“The contribution Peter Bondra has made and continues to make to NHL hockey, the Washington Capitals, and the local hockey community on and off the ice is admirable,” said Maryland Black Bears President Robyn Remick. “We share his passion for growing hockey in and around the Maryland region. We can’t wait to welcome back the Capitals legend to his former hockey home for our first Capitals Homecoming Night.”
