If you’re a millennial like myself, you probably have a friend who enjoys documenting every detail of their nights on the town via Snapchat or Instagram.

Since the Capitals won the Stanley Cup in Las Vegas, Jakub Vrana has turned himself into a household name by doing just that.

On Saturday, June 9th, the famous day that included Alex Ovechkin’s first pitch at Nationals Park, the Stanley Cup keg stand, and the fountain swim, Vrana gave Capitals fans an inside look at the team’s celebrations off the ice. Many of his antics were… Interesting.

Though he is just 22 years old, Vrana already began his preparations for life after hockey when he gave Joe B his audition to become the next voice of the Capitals.

He expressed appreciation to his teammates who play a more traditional style than himself.

He doted upon several companions who aided in the journey to the Cup.

Even in celebration, he showed a little grit and toughness.

He then pulled up his short sleeve shirt to reveal his wrist tattoo to the world.

Then… Well… We don’t really know what to say about this.

We will not speculate on what caused Vrana to enter such a state of delirium… Perhaps he was simply fueled by the adrenaline of winning hockey’s greatest prize.

But, for whatever reason, Tom Wilson eventually decided to put a stop to the shenanigans.

On the popular hockey podcast Spittin’ Chiclets, Wilson described himself giving Vrana a short lesson on social media.

“I did have to tell Vrana to shut his Instagram live story down,” Wilson said. “He was cross eyed and I was like, come on buddy… Just keep it to yourself here for the late hours of the night.”

Wilson made the comment with a chuckle, and seemed mostly amused with the documented tomfoolery. He also made sure to compliment Vrana’s play and personality.

“[Vrana] is an unbelievable kid to have around the room every day,” Wilson said. “That’s just who he is. I’m sure you can imagine what it’s like going to the rink every day with him.”

Since that fateful Saturday, the day Wilson likely interjected, Vrana has not stopped posting. His videos have, however, been a bit more tame.

It hasn’t stopped him from having fun.
