The NFL-champion Philadelphia Eagles won’t be visiting the White House to celebrate their Super Bowl victory, and should the Washington Capitals win the Stanley Cup, don’t expect Devante Smith-Pelly to make the trip to Pennsylvania Avenue, either.
Smith-Pelly voiced his disdain for Donald Trump Wednesday, telling Postmedia‘s Michael Traikos he believes the United States President is guilty of making “racist, sexist” comments. The Capitals forward says the team has not decided whether or not it would make the traditional White House visit, but claims he already has his mind made up.
Washington can hoist its first Stanley Cup in franchise history with one more victory over the Vegas Golden Knights. The Capitals lead the series 3-1 with Game 5 scheduled for Thursday in Las Vegas.
Smith-Pelly has been a major contributor during the Capitals’ playoff run, scoring six post-season goals after netting just seven during the regular season. The “roller coaster” year is nearly at its peak but likely won’t involve a trip to the White House.
