11th Annual NHLPA Rookie Showcase Comes to Washington (Photos)

For the first time in the event’s 11 year history, the 2019 National Hockey League Players’ Association (NHLPA) Rookie Showcase was held at MedStar Capitals Iceplex in Ballston, Virginia on Sunday. The annual event, typically held in Toronto, “showcases” many of the league’s best young talent, and provides an opportunity for the league’s future stars to gather and meet with the media. NoVa Caps photojournalist Joe Noyes was once again on hand to capture a few of the images from today’s event. [By the way, Joe spends his hockey offseason photographing the Baltimore Orioles for MLB and the Washington Redskins for the NFL, so if you’re an Orioles or Redskins fan, you will love giving him a follow on Instagram (here), or visiting his website (here).]

The following 27 NHL prospects and rookies attended the 2019 NHLPA Rookie Showcase:

Alexander Alexeyev (Capitals), Mikey Anderson (Kings), Kasper Bjorkqvist (Penguins), Adam Boqvist (Blackhawks), Jesper Boqvist(Devils), Shane Bowers (Avalanche), Bowen Byram (Avalanche), Kale Clague (Kings), Dylan Cozens (Sabres) Kirby Dach (Blackhawks),Noah Dobson (Islanders), Dante Fabbro (Predators), Joel Farabee (Flyers), Adam Fox (Rangers), Barrett Hayton (Coyotes), Taro Hirose(Red Wings), Jack Hughes (Devils), Quinn Hughes (Canucks), Pierre-Olivier Joseph (Penguins), Ukko-Pekka Luukkonen (Sabres), Jake Oettinger (Stars), Ryan Poehling (Canadiens), Jason Robertson (Stars), Igor Shesterkin (Rangers), Ty Smith(Devils), Nico Sturm (Wild) and Oliver Wahlstrom (Islanders).
