The Capitals will conclude their five-day development camp with a pep talk from head coach Barry Trotz, a prospects scrimmage game, an hour-long autograph session by newcomer T.J. Oshie, and a massive equipment sale.
It’s all part of the Caps’ annual Fan Fest at Kettler Capitals Iceplex. The eighth floor parking lot at the Ballston Mall will look like a hockey carnival with activities for children of all ages, including the Slapshot cage, a moon bounce, street hockey and airbrush artists and face painters.
Following the scrimmage, several development camp participants will stick around for autograph sessions.
