Caps Today 8/27

The 2013 U.S. Men's National Team Camp continues at Kettler Capitals Iceplex today. Today's event is sold out, as ticket holders will receive several exclusive opportunities. Fans will have a chance to skate on one of the two rinks for 30 minutes, receive autographs from players (between 9-11 a.m. at two locations in the Kettler complex) and watch the Wounded Warriors sled hockey game (10-11 a.m. on Capitals practice rink). In addition, all attending will get to view the on-ice ceremony hosted by Kathryn Tappen of the NHL Network (11:30 a.m. on Capitals practice rink) which will include giveaways, the introduction of all players at the camp and the unveiling of the 2014 Nike Olympic jersey. All ticket holders will also receive a limited edition puck, souvenir scarf, camp program, American flag, and exclusive pre-order access to the Nike USA Hockey Olympic replica jersey. Nearly 1,200 fans are expected to attend today’s festivities.
