Observations

July 2019 – Hugo Has has continued the tradition of the Capitals drafting players with two last names for the fourth consecutive year. Hugo Has was also a slider in the draft as many scouts were unimpressed with his 2018-201 season but realize there are quite a few tools there that can project him to be an NHL player. He has a good hockey IQ but the problem for him lies in his skating as he can seem slow which can make his transition to professional North American hockey very tough. Hugo Has does have a chance to make the NHL though, so this could e a fantastic fifth round pick for the Capitals is the value turns out. Pat Quinn

 

June 2019 – Haš has been drafted 153rd overall by the Capitals.  Jokke Nevalainen

 

February 2019 – Czech defenseman Haš has been spending his second year in a row in Finland, playing mostly for Tappara U20 team in Jr. A SM-liiga which is the top junior league in the country. He’s also been a regular with Czech national teams at the junior level, and he’s always been one of their best players. Haš is a two-way defenseman with great size at 6-foot-4. He isn’t overly physical but definitely has the type of body that allows him to be more physical later on. He also has that always-valuable right-handed shot from the blue line. He does a good job moving the puck and joining the rush but doesn’t do anything fancy offensively. He has a good shot and he’s not afraid to use it. He has upside to become a number four defenseman at the NHL level but may end up peaking as a reliable bottom-pair guy. But he has a lot of qualities that are valuable to NHL teams which gives him good NHL certainty.  Jokke Nevalainen
