Aussie makes his mark in the US Capital
Australia’s Nathan Walker created history on Saturday October 7th by being the first-ever Aussie professional hockey player to play in the NHL for the Washington Capitals.
Born in Wales but having lived in Australia since the age of two (so naturally we claim him!), Walker scored in his first-ever NHL appearance with 1:55 remaining in the second period, as the Capitals beat the Montreal Canadiens 6-1.
Capitals and Walker fans can stay up-to-date with the season schedule, thanks to ECAL. The Capitals ‘add to calendar‘ service will sync all games to your personal digital calendar, with handy alerts, game details and links to Tickets, Latest News, Shop and more.
We’re wrapped to see Nathan become a true Aussie trailblazer, especially for the Caps!
