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!

Capitals Sign Chris Bourque

As first reported by Caps senior writer Mike Vogel, the Washington Capitals have signed left wing Chris Bourque to a one-year contract.  The financial details of the deal are not available at this time, though it is believed to be a two-way deal.
Bourque, 25, is a former Capitals farmhand who split time between Russia's KHL and Switzerland's A-League last season while scoring 34 total points (15 goals) in 47 games. The Boston, MA, native won three Calder Cups while in the Washington's AHL affiliate the Hershey Bears, and his acquisition is, at this point, likely organizational depth.
