Washington Little Capitals Peewee Major Team 2016-17
Congratulations to all the players that have been selected to the 16-17 team. More Details will follow.
The North American Prospects Hockey League (NAPHL) announced its Peak Performers for the month of December, and once again the Little Caps feature among the league’s elite.
Alton Machen was named the Peak Performer (Offense) for the 15U Division. Alton posted at least one point in all 5 games during the December Showcase in Blaine, MN, collecting 3 goals and 4 assists on the weekend. Alton has become a regular point-per-game player in the NAPHL, helping the 15U team finish the regular season in second place. NAPHL Central Scouting has clearly taken notice.
Connor Leslie was selected as the NAPHL Peak Performer (Goaltending) for the 15U Division. Connor posted a perfect 3-0 record in Blaine, allowing just 2 goals in that span. He shut out the Colorado Springs Tigers, lowering his league goals against average to 2.22 and improving his league record to 3-2.
Adam Varga was named the Second Star (Offense) for the 15U Division – his second time taking that honor. Varga is the leading scorer in the 15U division, posting 12 goals and 4 assists in 10 games.
NAPHL Central Scouting selects the outstanding player, or Peak Perfomer, for offense, defense, and goaltending each month. Learn more about the NAPHL and the NAPHL Peak Performers here.
Congratulations to these outstanding players and their families!

Many of the articles discuss what it was like for our alumni as Little Caps, how they overcame challenges at each stage of their careers, and most importantly the special advice they offer for today's Little Caps.

The WLC would like to thank Marc Thiessen for spearheading this project, including authoring the terrific content. Mark Crosby and Vanessa Smingler were also instrumental in making this project a huge success. A HUGE thanks to Peter Anas and Anas Creative for printing the magazine at a significant discount. Many WLC families were able to significantly offset their 2016-17 hockey costs by selling ads in the magazine. Thanks to all for your continued support and efforts on behalf of the Club.
Let’s go Little Caps!
