Washington Capitals' Joel Ward Gets Trapped in Omni Dallas Bathroom

The bathroom in the Dallas Omni tried hard to get Joel Ward out of tonight's contest against the Dallas Stars...


Just a little fun this morning... Joel Ward, presumably before boarding the team bus for morning skate at American Airlines Center, somehow got stuck in a bathroom stall at the Omni in hotel in Dallas ahead of their matchup with the Stars tonight.

You can't make this stuff up.

Morning skate isn't a favorite past time of any hockey player - This would have been one of the more creative ways to get out of it. Naturally, they took to Twitter...

He called Karl Alzner...

And John Carlson...

Because sometimes you have to rely on your defense to bail you out.

Joel Ward played in Nashville for years, so he knows what it's like to be stuck in the toilet. #divisionrivalry #kidding

No word on what he was doing in there, but if you ever find yourself in a bathroom stall that's even capable of trapping you, you must be at a nice place.

I'm sure Antoine Roussel is taking notes for ammunition tonight.
