Fatima Al Ali, the member of the United Arab Emirates women's national team who was invited to Washington to meet with the Capitals as part of the NHL's "Hockey is for Everyone" month, took to the ice with the club Wednesday.

Al Ali had the chance to take one-timer feeds from her favorite player, Capitals captain Alex Ovechkin, firing shots from his home on the power play.

After that, Ovechkin presented her with one of his game-used sticks.

Before practice, Capitals great Petr Bondra, who invited Al Ali to Washington after discovering her talents in a video posted online, presented her with a custom sweater.

She shared some of those puck-handling skills that impressed Bondra with Evgeni Kuznetsov.

Al Ali had an incredible reaction when the Capitals reached out to her in December. You can find that here.
