Capitals Daily Report: Long Workouts Conclude Practice Portion of Development Camp


What a week! Friday morning was the final day of practice sessions at Development Camp. NoVa Caps has all the video highlights you need from day four. On Saturday morning, the camp will conclude with a scrimmage. 

Time to take the ice!

The pipes are a goaltender’s best friend.

Adam Carlson was picking up where he left off from yesterday. He looks to have a big season with the South Carolina Stingrays.

Some running, or I guess skating, around in between drills.

Tim McGauley working around the cones on one end of the rink.

In the middle is another short rink. Sheldon Rempal and Kevin Elgestal worked around the sticks.

On the far end, Shane Gersich, Rempal, and Stephen Collins worked on their shots in front of the net.

Axel Jonsson-Fjallby showed his quickness both along the boards and driving to the net. Check out that hair.

The defensemen began their session by skating backwards. Speaking of defensemen, an important one that’s currently on the Capitals got a new contract.

Then it was time to line up and go from one end of the ice to the other… backwards.

Chase Priskie with two snipes.

Lucas Johansen, Dmitri Zaitsev, Jonas Siegenthaler, and Tobias Geisser work around the short cones.

After Johansen’s and Gersich’s performance the other day, Colby Williams had something to say about the puck catching act.

Tyler Anderson practicing his shots.

“None shall pass!” – Mack Shields, probably.

The players left the ice and once again split into two groups, one on the public rink and the other on the Capitals’ rink.

The Capitals rink group started by working the full rink.

Damien Riat got a couple of good looks in front of the net.

Glove save by Shields.

The closest thing you’ll see for a scrimmage until tomorrow.

Coaching em up.


Collin Delia stopping everything in his sight.

Missed the net by that much.

Crash the net!

Kevin Elgestal almost scores…

He would later redeem himself.

Brian Pinho, Jonsson-Fjallby, and Mark Simpson practiced puck control around the stick.

Public rink group is all done.

Some blueliners on the Caps rink group were practicing shots from two different parts.

Gersich scores!

Great cross-ice pass by Gersich. Garrett Pilon bangs it in.

That’s a wrap from day four of Development Camp.

Barry Trotz spoke with reporters following Friday’s session.

Trotz would continue saying, “I don’t feel it’s that big of a deal for me. I’m in a good spot. Maybe we’ll have our best year.” *Wink*
