Washington Capitals prospect Garrett Haar kicked off team at Western Michigan

Garrett Haar (29) - Bruce Bennett

A day after losing Michael McCarron to the Canadiens, Garrett Haar has been removed from the WMU roster.

Western Michigan University defenseman and Washington Capitals prospect Garrett Haar has been kicked off the team by head coach Andy Murray. The junior-to-be was initially declared ineligible for the first semester, but his since been released entirely.

Murray spoke with David Drew of MLive and offered some very scathing comments on the multiple issues he had with Haar, a Huntington Beach, Calif. native. It is unclear what Haar's next move is. He has been at the Washington Capitals Development Camp.

The Washington Capitals selected Haar in the 2011 NHL Draft with the 207th overall pick, late in the seventh and final round. Haar was originally a Northeastern commit, but de-committed following a coaching change. Haar will now reportedly play for the Medicine Hat Tigers in the WHL.

Haar's departure came one day after it was announced that former WMU recruit Michael McCarron would not be attending the school. McCarron signed a three-year entry-level deal with the Montreal Canadiens yesterday.
