Once upon a time, defenseman Brendan Witt manned the Caps’ blueline. Mr. @whitemooseranch was a fan favorite, which the Caps officially acknowledged with a giveaway.

Question for the readers: Does anyone remember when this was given away? Witt was drafted by the Caps and played with them from 1995–96 to 2005–06, and they had the jersey shown on the pin during this period.

While NHL team lapel pins are easily found, there are few individual players who have one. This means Mr. Witt and Miss Piggy have something in common:
