Monday, 12.03.2012 / 12:00 PM 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. As part of the partnership 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 next 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 ofboth schools. Special Capitals personalities, including mascot Slapshot, the Red Rockers and various Caps alumni will also be in attendance at featured high school games.

The Walt Whitman vs. Winston Churchill matchup on Nov. 30 won the first round of voting and received an incredible voter turnout and response. Because of the popularity of the first round of voting, the second round will include two additional matchups for a total of five possible contests. Voting for round two will run through Monday, Dec. 10, at 5 p.m. so vote early and vote often!

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