The Washington Capitals are proud to select from the Red Deer Rebels, Haydn Fleury.
Haydn adds a needed top4 LHD to the Washington Capitals who are thin on the left side. Fleury is a big, physical blueliner who shows good offensive ability. He's strong and balanced on his skates, keep his head up and understands developing plays. He rubs opposing forwards out and isn't shy to make a solid hit
Short on LW prospects, we feel like his style of play(big, strong, great skater, and great shot) will fit in perfectly a few years from now. Dont think his shoulder injury will have much, if any, effect on him in the long term. We feel like we just had another steal fall right into our lap.
