Caps Today, 7/8/13

Today’s Storyline
The Capitals 2013 Prospect Development Camp begins today at Kettler Capitals Iceplex.

Capitals development camp is an annual week-long summer session with on- and off-ice workouts designed to help Capitals prospects improve their games and allow the Capitals to evaluate their progress. This is the seventh straight year that the camp is being held at Kettler Capitals Iceplex; past development camps have been held in Odenton, Md., and Hershey, Pa.

All on-ice sessions, including the four intrasquad games, are free and open to the public.

Attendees include Capitals prospects who are under contract and recent Capitals draft picks who have not been signed yet. In addition, several undrafted and free agent amateur players will be in attendance.
