This is my blog about the Washington Capitals. Here you will find game analysis, information on upcoming matchups, player profiles, and much more to keep you up-to-date with the Caps. Here’s some information about me…
I am Robert Plant, a native of Annapolis, Maryland and a current student at Towson University where I study Mass Communications. I also played four years for the University’s club ice hockey team. I have four sisters along with eight nieces and nephews. I graduated from DeMatha Catholic High School in 2003, while playing ice hockey for both DeMatha’s Varsity team, and the Washington Junior Capitals hockey club where I received Rookie of the Year in the MET-league. After graduating I moved to Boston, Massachusetts to play Junior A hockey for the Bay State Breakers for two years.
I like to spend my free time playing golf, but not as well as Tiger of course, and I also love to listen to music and jam on the guitar. Although playing numerous sports as a child, my true passion is ice hockey, which I’ve been playing for 19 years. I received the All-Met Player of the Year Award and 1st Team All-Met my senior year as captain at DeMatha, along with two state championships my sophomore and junior years.
I plan to graduate from Towson in the Spring of 2010, and pursue a career in writing or public relations. I also plan to coach younger children and be a mentor for youth hockey players. I am currently a mentor for the Baltimore Saints special hockey program. My experiences both on and off the ice have molded me into a responsible and mature young man. My leadership skills have helped lead my past teams to state and world championships, and I hope to carry those same skills into the workforce.
