Christmas time is here. 

In the days leading up to December 25th, CSN Mid-Atlantic will be providing you a look at the Christmas past and present of your favorite Capitals players with our "12 Days of Capitals" series.

Capitals head coach Barry Trotz is a family-first man, as many in the nation's capital have come to learn in his three seasons with the Capitals.

Trotz and his wife Kim sent us lot of pictures of them with their kids- Shalan, Tyson, Tiana, and Nolan. There's a wide variety of photos, from a wide variety of decades.


There are the family photos of the Trotz family in Nashville- gotta love the obligatory Grand Ole Opry picture – and lots of them on the ice. 


But the ones that top our Christmas tree are those that show a young Barry with a full head of hair on top his head, not to be outdone by his moustache.
