The Washington Capitals continue with their 2018 Development Camp today at Kettler Capitals Iceplex. All on-ice sessions are free and open to the public.
Shane Gersich attended last summer’s development camp and appeared in three games with the Capitals in 2017-18. Gersich made his NHL debut on March 28 versus the New York Rangers and recorded an assist in his third career game on April 7 against New Jersey. In addition, Gersich appeared in two postseason games. Eight players who attended the 2017 development camp played for Washington’s AHL affiliate, the Hershey Bears, during the 2017-18 regular season (Kristofers Bindulis, Hampus Gustafsson, Connor Hobbs, Lucas Johansen, Tim McGauley, Mason Mitchell, Jonas Siegenthaler, Colby Williams). Two players (Adam Carlson, Stephen Collins) played for Washington’s ECHL affiliate, the South Carolina Stingrays, in 2017-18.
