#7 Alan May
Alan May is a fan favorite among Washington Capitals fans for his gritty and hard nosed style of play. Opponents were afraid of him and for good reason. Currently Alan May is a pregame and postgame show host at NBC Sports Washington. Before the glitz and glamor of TV, whoever messed with Alan May on the ice was in for a miserable time.
The Caps acquired May via a trade in the summer of 1989 from the Los Angeles Kings in exchange for a fifth round draft pick. May had a career high seven goals and 10 assists for 17 points in 1989-90 while racking up 339 penalty minutes.
May’s offensive numbers dipped the next season to just four goals and six assists for 10 points but he had more minutes in the sin bin with 364 penalty minutes. His third season was better offensively with six goals and nine assists for 15 points with less time in the penalty box with 221 penalty minutes.
In 1992-93, May scored six goals and added 10 assists for 16 points and racked up 268 penalty minutes. The 1993-94 season would be May’s final season with the Caps before he was traded midseason to the Dallas Stars.
If the pregame and postgame shows return to Capital One Arena be sure to stop by the broadcast and say hi to Alan May. He’s definitely a good chat.
