Honest Matt Niskanen: “I think I feel okay. ..It’s just awkward to get back into it. You feel awkward for a while.” (Alex Prewitt/Washington Post)
Andre Burakovsky is scheduled to arrive on September 10th.
Nothing has been officially announced, however training camp will likely start a day or two after rookie tournament, so our best guess will be Friday, September 18th, plus or minus a day. Update: Off-ice testing is Sept. 17. First day on the ice is Sept. 18.
