All-Star weekend is finally here, and that means that the fantasy draft for Sunday's exhibition match will be tonight in Raleigh. As you all know, Capitals captain Alex Ovechkin is in the draft pool, and defenseman Mike Green is an alternate captain on the team captained by Carolina superstar Eric Staal.
The draft is scheduled for 8 P.M. this evening and can be seen on Versus.
Welcome to Caps 'Round the Clock, a blog covering the Washington Capitals and the NHL. In season, I update the Blog after every practice and on game day with Caps news and information, and then provide a recap and analysis after each contest. I also write a periodical Prospect Watch and weekly feature pieces on the state of the Men in Red and other things Capitals. And of course, I will post videos and tidbits from around the League and offer my two cents as the season wears on. In the offseason, I write a Report Card for each player, and will keep you updated on all the news about the Caps through the summer. I'm glad you're here, and hope you come back!
