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.
