Another member of the Stanley Cup champion Washington Capitals is declining his invitation to the White House.

Goaltender Braden Holtby, who earned all 16 postseason wins while posting a .922 save percentage for the Caps last spring, made it known Friday that he won’t be joining his teammates in celebrating their championship in D.C. on Monday.

Holtby said he is "respectfully declining" to participate in the trip and that he wanted to "stay true to my values."
