Washington Capitals defenseman Nate Schmidt sat down with The Daily Caller to discuss life as an NHL player.

Schmidt comes from Minnesota and it was very clear from the start that he was a your standard Midwestern dude. We had a great talk about if he splurged on anything after going pro, the horror of having to play the Wisconsin Badgers while in college, what will set him off in a fight and if it’s as easy to meet women as a professional athlete.


Overall, just an outstanding player interview and, to be fair, he destroyed my Badgers while in college.
