Caps Media Relations Staff Wins Dillman Award

Although sometimes I believe they are under appreciated within our own organization, I am and have always been keenly aware that the Washington Capitals’ media relations staff is comprised of a top-notch group of people who are very efficient, adept and skilled at what they do. I also believe they’re very good people. That’s why I was so pleased to learn yesterday that the very people they serve agree with me.

The Capitals media relations staff is the 2006-07 recipient of the Dick Dillman Award for the NHL’s Eastern Conference, given annually to the team judged to be the best in media relations by the members of the Professional Hockey Writers’ Association (PHWA). The PHWA made the announcement this weekend in Columbus, Ohio, in conjunction with the 2007 NHL Entry Draft.

For the first time this year, the PHWA presented separate Dillman awards for the Eastern and Western conferences, with the San Jose Sharks earning the honor in the West.

Congratulations to vice president of communications Kurt Kehl — who oversees the media relations bunch — Nate Ewell, Paul Rovnak and Julie Petri. All four of them do great work and are great people, and it’s nice to see them get some much-deserved positive recognition. It’s richly earned and well-deserved. Congratulations, my friends.
