Capitals to Spotlight High School Hockey

Fan Vote to Determine Key Matchup

Monday, 11.19.2012 / 11:30 AM Washington Capitals

The Washington Capitals are partnering with the Mid-Atlantic Prep Hockey League (MAPHL), Northern Virginia Scholastic Hockey League (NVSHL) and the Maryland Student Hockey League (MSHL) to promote amateur hockey in the Virginia, Maryland and D.C. area. To kick off the high school season teams, friends, family and fans can vote on which of the three nominated high school matchups from D.C., Maryland or Virginia will take part in the exciting event. The matchup that garners the most votes will be covered by the Capitals, who will produce a segment featuring highlights, analysis and interviews of both schools. Special Capitals personalities, including mascot Slapshot, the Red Rockers and various Caps alumni will also be in attendance at featured high school games.

In addition a weekly feature, "Amateur Hockey Roundup," will highlight impressive performances by local teams, coaches and players every Monday during the 2012-13 school year.
