No rest for the weary. Just two days after the NHL draft, all four of the Capitals' 2017 draft picks will join the team for its annual Development Camp starting on Monday.
Every year the Caps host a one-week camp for prospects. As many of these players play in other leagues or in Europe, this provides the team with an opportunity to instruct and evaluate many of its young players, as well as evaluate young free agents.
This year's roster does not include some of the bigger-name prospects such as Jakub Vrana, Madison Bowey or Ilya Samsonov. Here is the full roster for the camp:
The players will take the ice for the first time on Tuesday. Here is the full schedule for development camp:
For the fans, the Caps will host Fan Fest on Tuesday at Kettler. The Fan Fest will include the annual equipment sale, a Q&A session and photo opportunity with Caps alums, coaches and prospects and kid activities. There will also be a Caps Alumni Exhibition game at 7 p.m.
