WAYNE HONESTLY PIPE DOWN HENDRIX LAPIERRE JUST DID IT
Hendrix Lapierre, 19, in his first NHL game just scored on a slick drop pass from T.J. Oshie to make it 3-0 over NYR on opening night. Players on the ice went nuts. Bench went nuts. Crowd went nuts. What a moment. #Caps
T.J. Oshie was so happy for Hendrix Lapierre. Such a cool moment.
Lapierre has talked at length about learning from Oshie, following him around, hoping he wasn't being too annoying with all the questions to the veteran.
