Capitals' Barry Trotz painted house numbers during NHL lockout

Thursday January 15th, 2015

Capitals coach Barry Trotz really likes hockey. He likes it so much that he gets very listless when it is not around, and starts to do weird things.

He recently told The Washington Post that during the NHL lockout in 2012-13, he grabbed a can of paint and set out on a neighborhood beautification project.
