The Ducks traded winger Dustin Penner to the Capitals on Tuesday, leaving him scrambling for a place to live in Washington while he joins his new team.

Maybe he knows someone who lives in a spacious house than might be able to let him crash through the end of the season? Something close to the major sites?


.@BarackObama hey i know this is last minute & I hate asking on such short notice but can I crash for a few days? I’m great with kids— Dustin Penner (@Dustinpenner25) March 4, 2014


No response from the president yet, who apparently has other things on his mind right now. But you can become part of the petition below to get Penner a berth on the White House couch.
