Halpern's mother killed in crash
Capitals centre Jeff Halpern's mother was killed in a big car accident in Florida on the weekend. Condolences are in order.
Halpern himself has to be one of the most underrated young players in the NHL... if he was playing on any other team besides Washington, there's no doubt in my mind that he'd be more well known. And expect him to take a bigger role with Team USA as more and more veterans are put out to pasture on that team.
