9 - Number of Capitals on this year’s opening night roster who were with the team when they dropped the puck on the 2017-18 season. Here are the remaining members of that eventual Cup-winning squad:

  • Alex Ovechkin
  • Nicklas Backstrom
  • T.J. Oshie
  • Evgeny Kuznetsov
  • Jakub Vrana
  • Lars Eller
  • Tom Wilson
  • Dmitry Orlov
  • John Carlson

That number jumps up to 10 if you fast-forward to the 2018 playoffs, when Michal Kempny joined the team (and 11 counting Shane Gersich, who isn’t on the roster or the taxi squad but is still with the organization).
