Young, gifted hockey players from around the world begin descending on Washington this weekend to participate in the Capitals’ annual Development Camp out at the team’s training facility in Arlington, Va. Camp commences Monday morning, and all on-ice sessions are free and open to the public. Need additional inducement to attend? In a note to media yesterday Capitals’ Senior Director of Media Relations Nate Ewell pointed out that it was a frosty 58 degrees inside Kettler Capitals. From the Capitals’ camp-announcing press release:

ARLINGTON, VA. – Twenty-three Washington Capitals prospects, including all five selections from last month’s NHL Draft, will participate in the team’s annual development camp from July 12-17 at Kettler Capitals Iceplex in Arlington, Va.

Among the confirmed participants are Capitals first-round draft picks Evgeny Kuznetsov (2010), Marcus Johansson (2009), Anton Gustafsson (2008) and Joe Finley (2005). Three participants – Cody Eakin, Braden Holtby and Zach Miskovic – played for the American Hockey League’s Hershey Bears during their run to the 2010 Calder Cup. Two players from last season’s development camp played for the Capitals in 2009-10 (John Carlson and Mathieu Perreault).

All development camp on-ice workouts, which will include multiple scrimmages, are open to the public. The off-ice workouts are closed to the public. Camp concludes with a scrimmage on Saturday, July 17, at 10 a.m., the highlight of Fan Fest that day will also include autograph sessions, interactive games, street hockey, a free public skate, the team’s annual equipment sale and an appearance from current Capitals forward Brooks Laich.

    I hope Marcus Johansson and/or Anton Gustafsson makes a crazy leap this year. Backy was already polished at 19. I’m sure GMGM never would’ve signed Nylander if he knew Backstrom would blossom so quickly — maybe that helped make him gunshy on signing a FA #2 center recently.

  2. Hittman says:

    Swedes make the best centers because of their excellent two way play. If Perreault and one of these Swedes can make the leap to the NHL next year, that would be pretty great.

  3. BONZAI says:

    It maybe asking too much for one of them to make the leap this year, but I’m hoping they do! GMGM seems to be staking his claim to one of those guys given the Caps not signing any FA’s.

    Would it be possible to update the roster list with all the invitees?
