The Capitals embarked on their annual mentors’ trip Wednesday afternoon following practice. The annual trip allows players to bring their father or friend along for a couple of road games. This year the mentors are along for this week’s mid-western swing, with stops in St. Louis and Dallas. A few of the photos from the first leg of the trip:
