The Capitals’ Organization Completes a Hat Trick of Broadcast Triumph This Season

Big-time congratulations are in order to the Hershey Bears’ John Walton, who called his 1,000th American League game last night in Hershey’s 4-3 win over Springfield at Giant Center. Thursday’s game was a reschedule from Wednesday night, when thundersnow struck the central PA community just as it did D.C.’s.

It’s been a hat trick of extraordinary accomplishments for the radio men of Washington-affiliated hockey this season: Earlier this season the Capitals’ Steve Kolbe called his 1,000th game with the Caps, and the Capitals’ original radio voice, Ron Weber, was inducted into the Hockey Hall of Fame as the 2010 Foster Hewitt Memorial Award recipient. JW belongs right with them as an iconic voice bringing our game alive to those not in the arena.
