On a Zoom call with the media, Bears goalie, Pheonix Copley, and forward, Beck Malenstyn, gave their thoughts on the season being cancelled and confirmed that they would both be black aces for the Capitals if or when the NHL season resumes.

Copley was the backup goalie to Braden Holtby during the 2018-2019 season, and Malentsyn was an injury recall this past November and played in three games for the Caps.
