The Capitals held a moment of silence for Dwayne Haskins Jr.

WASHINGTON, D.C. — Before the Washington Capitals squared off against the Boston Bruins on Sunday, the team paid tribute to remember former Washington Commanders quarterback Dwayne Haskins Jr., who died on Saturday.

Haskins, who was training with Pittsburgh Steelers, was attempting to cross a South Florida highway when he was struck by a dump truck on Saturday. He was pronounced dead at the scene. Haskins was 24 years old.

The Capitals showed a photo of Haskins on the jumbotron and shared the news before holding a moment of silence.

Haskins played NCAA football at Ohio State. He had a standout year in 2018 with the Buckeyes and broke records as well. Washington took him 15th overall in the 2019 NFL Draft. Haskins played two years in D.C. before signing with the Steelers last season.
