Caps Today, 6/28/18

June 28, 2018
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.

Alexander Alexeyev is participating in the Capitals’ Development Camp after the defenseman was selected 31st overall in the first round of the 2018 NHL Draft. Alexeyev, 18, was ranked ninth overall among North American defensemen by NHL Central Scouting. The St. Petersburg, Russia, native spent the 2017-18 season with the Red Deer Rebels of the Western Hockey League (WHL). Alexeyev led Red Deer defensemen with 37 points (7g, 30a) and recorded 29 penalty minutes in 45 games. The 6’4”, 196-pound defenseman also added another five points (2g, 3a) in three playoff games. In 86 career WHL games, all with Red Deer, Alexeyev has recorded 58 points (11g, 47a) and 53 penalty minutes.

The complete 2018 Capitals Development Camp Guide can be found here.
