Jay Beagle Has Yet to Be ‘Hazed’

Posted November 25, 2009

83205132With eight NHL games under his belt, Capitals rookie Jay Beagle is well aware of what will be coming to him soon.

No, he won’t be getting his head shaved, or getting tied to the goal post as teammates take shots. Instead, he’ll have to do what the Capitals have replaced with traditional hazing: Pick up a fat restaurant tab.

“I’m saving every paycheck… It might as well be steak and lobster, something good… surf ‘n’ turf,” Beagle said.

Keep in mind, the meal is for 20 or so players, plus coaches and trainers. That’s about 30 people who are ordering whatever they want, including wine, at an expensive restaurant. And if it’s in L.A. or New York, the bill might be even more. Plus tip, that could be a few thousand bucks, for one meal. And if he gets sent back down to Hershey after that? Too bad.

Enjoy the food, Jay!
