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!

Garrett Haar Named to CCHA All-Rookie Team

Haar skates at Development Camp this past July.
On Monday, the Central Collegiate Hockey Association, or CCHA, announced it's All-Rookie team for the 2011-12 season.  Among those honored on the first team was Capitals prospect Garrett Haar, who spent this past season playing for the University of Western Michigan Broncos.
Haar, 18, was Washington's 7th round selection, 207th overall, in the 2011 NHL Entry Draft.  The native of Huntington Beach, California, notched one goal, six assists, and 22 penalty minutes in 31 games for the Broncos this year.  One of the things that is particularly impressive about this selection is that the CCHA contains some real powerhouse schools, including Michigan, Ohio State, and Miami Ohio.
Congratulations to Haar, who is expected to attend Capitals Development Camp this July, just like he did last summer.
