Caps’ fans wanting to get into Kettler Capitals Iceplex for the September 18 scrimmage between the Caps’ and Flyers’ prospects that day will need to be online and at the Caps’ Web site next Thursday, September 4, when the team will issue free tickets required for admission. Per the team press release today on the event:
“The Washington Capitals’ 2008 rookie camp begins Sept. 14 and culminates with a game against the Philadelphia Flyers rookies on Thursday, Sept. 18, at 3 p.m. at Kettler Capitals Iceplex.
“Every on-ice session during rookie camp is free and open to the public to attend. The game against Philadelphia is also free, but a ticket will be needed to gain admission. To secure a ticket, fans will need to RSVP at WashingtonCaps.com. Since seating at Kettler Capitals Iceplex is limited there is a maximum of two tickets per person, and tickets are available on a first-come, first-served basis. A ticket will gain fans admission to the game, but because of seating limitations it does not necessarily guarantee a seat.
“Fans can begin to RSVP online on Thursday, Sept. 4, and will need to bring their printed confirmation with them to gain admission to the game. Fans will need to enter through the main entrance of Kettler Capitals Iceplex, which is on the eighth floor of the Ballston Common Mall parking garage. No copies or duplicate confirmation sheets will be permitted.
This will be a first-of-its-kind event at the facility, and given the opponent, not one to be missed.
