Team placements are posted

Team placement for 10U and 12U, and squirts through bantams, are posted to your Crossbar account. I want to thank all of the people who helped with evaluations: our evaluators, those who helped on the ice, our locker room monitors, and, above all, TJ Barnes, who organized and ran our evaluation process. Evaluations are stressful, and our volunteers devote countless hours to getting it right. Thank you!

We were super excited about our players’ performances at evaluations. The play was amazing, and we look forward to many stellar performances on the ice this season.

Team placement can be tough for some families. Remember that a player’s current team says nothing about their potential as a hockey player. Matt Gleason, the most successful Capitals player in recent history, began his squirt career as a C player. Many of the players on our top peewee team this season played on a peewee C team last season.

The Capitals remain committed to developing all of our players. We recently hired Alex Johnson and David Zevnik, who coach at Breakaway Academy, as skill instructors for our boys teams. OS will again do skills training for our girls teams. These instructors will help ensure our players' continued development.

Please reach out if you have questions or concerns about team placement. Please honor the Capitals’ mandatory 24 hour cooling off period.

I wish you all a happy hockey season. See you at the rink!

Go Caps!

Owen Nei featured on NBC Nightly News!

The Capitals have gone national! Owen Nei's last game at the "Chuck" was featured on NBC Nightly News on Saturday, March 19th.

NBC anchor Jose Diaz-Balart interviewed Chris and Owen Nei, manager Scott McMahon, and teammates for the segment.

Reflecting on how Owen's inspiring story has gone national, McMahon reflected, "what started as a 'hey let's get a bunch of people at Owen's last game,' has turned into something that none of us could imagine!"

Peewee C Blue Wins District Championship!!!

The Capitals Peewee C Blue team won its district championship in a 3-2 overtime victory against White Bear Lake Orange.

The team's road to the championship was not easy.  After rolling over Hudson, the team had to come back from a 3 goal deficit in the final period to prevail over a tough City of Lakes squad in its next game.  That victory was followed by a tight game against the East Metro Stars, before the team met up with White Bear Lake Orange, a team it had not beaten all season.

Led by Captain Owen Nei, playing in his final game as a St. Paul Capital, the Capitals took an early lead in the first period.  The teams traded goals in the second period to put the Caps up by one going into the final frame.  But White Bear Lake battled back and tied the game towards the end of the third period, sending the game into overtime.  A minute into sudden death, Defenseman Felix Show shot the puck from the top of the left circle through the goalie's legs to win the game and the District 2 Championship! 

Coach Chris Nei reflected after the game, "The kids played great tonight.  This is a special group of kids.  They didn't lose a game against another C team all season."

Congratulations to the Peewee C Blues on its Peewee C District Championship!!!
