January 2020 – Has has been one of the best defensemen for the Czech Republic and has three points in four games. Unfortunately for the Czech’s they were placed in to the group of death that contained Canada, USA and Russia. They were able to beat the Russians and took the USA to overtime and Has was a big reason for that, and the Czech’s made the playoff rounds. He has three points in four games and well need to do everything possible to attempt to beat the top Group A team in Sweden. Pat Quinn
December 2019 – Has has been moved around the Finnish leagues quite a bit. He started in the Jr. A Liiga and after two games he was moved up to the Liiga. In the Liiga he played two games, having a goal and an assist, and he was then loaned to the Mestis Finnish league where he has played the last 13 games. He was selected by the home country Czech Republic to represent the team at the World Junior Championship. Pat Quinn
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
