The Washington Capitals rookies took on the Florida Panthers today at the IceDen in Coral Springs, Florida.
Just before the end of the second period, Capitals top prospect Jakub Vrana dropped his mitts for the first time in his career. He did not choose his first opponent wisely. Vrana fought Panthers prospect Jayce Hawryluk, a 2014 second round pick who calls Brad Marchand his favorite player. According to Hockey Fights, Hawryluk has punched faces four previous times.
