The Washington Capitals acquired Dustin Penner from the Anaheim Ducks in a trade early Tuesday. The 6-foot-4, 247-pound forward packs a punch that has been missing on the Caps’ top line. He may also pack a few punch lines. The savvy veteran went on a series of good humor tweets to sort of break the ice with the Capitals’ faithful.

He got things started by asking President Barack Obama if he could crash at the White House during his time in Washington.

It appears Penner is desperate for a place to stay once he gets in the nation’s capital, and he would really love to check in with President Obama at the White House, as “said” in this petition:

Not sure how petitions work on social media, but Penner has until sometime early Friday morning to find a pad to crash at, as the Capitals will be in Philadelphia on Wednesday and Boston on Thursday before returning back to the District.

If all fails, I’m pretty sure his fellow Winkler, Manitoba native Eric Fehr will aide him in finding somewhere to rest his head.

As for the ‘Win the whole F—– thing’ spill, this guy knows a thing about winning a championship or two.
