Can the Washington Capitals find some late-season magic and make a run to the Stanley Cup Finals? We asked Caps Play-by-Play Broadcast John Walton that very question.
Walton is the voice of the Washington Capitals, but previously spent almost a decade as the voice of the Hershey Bears from 2002-11. In August, he will reach 10 years with the Capitals franchise.
He serves as the team’s Director of Broadcasting, and is also a play-by-play broadcaster for NBC Sports. Walton made his NBC Olympics debut in the 2018 Winter Games calling Women’s Hockey games.
Walton got his start in radio in college at Miami University where he studied Mass Communications and serves as Sports Director of the student radio station.
In this week’s episode, Walton talks Caps limping into playoffs with injury-prone roster, Craig Anderson look-alike, and tells Caps fans it’s OK to believe.
Plus, Logan and Allie debate who the squad thinks is winning the NBA MVP in 2021, and how far the Sixers are going to go in the playoffs.
