The Washington Capitals begin their 2018 Development Camp today at Kettler Capitals Iceplex. All on-ice sessions are free and open to the public.

Brian Pinho will be participating in his sixth development camp this year (2013-18). Pinho, who was selected by the Capitals in the sixth round, 174th overall, in the 2013 NHL Draft, registered 32 points (12g, 20a) in 40 games with Providence College (NCAA) in 2017-18. Pinho tied a career high in goals with the Friars last season and finished second on the team in scoring. Pinho, who served as captain last season, was awarded the team’s Lou Lamoriello Award (Team MVP) for the second-straight season, earned the Hockey East’s Best Defensive Forward Award and the Frank Jones Award as New England’s Best Defensive Forward.
