On the ice at Kettler today: John Carlson, Matt Niskanen, Evgeny Kuznetsov, Dmitri Orlov, Stanislav Galiev, Liam O’Brien, Nathan Walker, Jakub Vrana, Vitek Vanecek, and Connor Carrick.  (Alex Prewitt/Washington Post)

Dmitry Orlov shut down for about 3 weeks after the season, but the surgically repaired wrist is “fine right now…Feel good. Ready to go.” (Alex Prewitt/Washington Post)

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.
