The trio were the final three Capitals involved with the World Cup of Hockey, making tomorrow the first day in which all roster players will be present and accounted for.
The Capitals had their first day off of training camp on Friday. The team will go split-squad on Saturday, as one group will prepare for the Islanders on Saturday night.
None of the World Cup participants will play vs. the #Islanders on Saturday, Reirden said. That game will be played in Bridgeport, Conn.
