Goaltender Braden Holtby and defenseman Jonas Siegenthaler joined the Washington Capitals’ informal skates, which lead up to training camp on September 13, on Wednesday. In addition, defenseman Michal Kempny returned to Washington and was getting checked out by the team’s medical staff.

Kempny tore his hamstring after a collision with Tampa Bay Lightning forward Cedric Paquette on March 20. He missed the final eight games of the regular season and all seven of the Capitals’ Stanley Cup Playoff games. Kempny underwent surgery on April 2.

Kempny told the media at breakdown day on April 26 that he expects to be ready for the start of training camp.

More and more players should be flocking into town throughout the next few weeks. The Capitals have been holding informal skates for the past couple of weeks.
