Wizards’ Yi Meets Caps

Posted October 11, 2010

Washington Wizards power forward Yi Jianlian attended Monday’s game, sitting with Ted Leonsis to witness the Capitals’ 3-2 overtime victory against the Ottawa Senators.

Leonsis brought Yi to the locker room after the game. The 7-footer from China towered over everyone as he was introduced to several Capitals, including player of the game Eric Fehr.

“We’re just bring him around to say hi, making him feel welcome into the city. It’s his first hockey game,” Leonsis said.

Yi said he enjoyed the game. No word on whether Michal Neuvirth asked him to get out of his locker space.
