It’s not often an equipment manager gets any recognitions – publicly, at least – but the Caps were good enough to honor Craig “Woody” Leydig for working 2,000 games with the team when he hit the mark Saturday night in Toronto.

The Caps paid tribute to Woody on the big screen during Wednesday’s game at Verizon Center against Ottawa. The crowd stood and applauded and the players gave stick taps for a couple moments, then play continued, and Woody went on doing his job, just as he’s done for 25 years.

Woody was also honored for his 1000th game and 1500th game, but didn’t receive any type of bonus for his milestones. He didn’t seem to mind.
