    This is a “must attend” event for me.

    Who do the Caps define as still being “prospects?”

    • Jon Sorensen says:

      It’s a loose term, by all means. It generally means all draft picks and top recent draft picks are invited to the camp. We classify “prospects” as any player officially in the Capitals organization, not on the Capitals roster.

      They will release roster shortly.

    I plan to attend. I still haven’t received our “special invitation” from the Caps Club Red 365 membership team yet.

    I got the special invitation for season ticket holder. I hope to be in town. Going to be an important rooking camp and training camp. A lot of players have a chance to grab a spot. But as always, it must be earned. But i like to lean in a bit more on our prospects. Leason, Protas, AFJ, Pilon, Malensyn, Hendrix, Johansson, and Nardella all have opportunities. CMM, Fever, and Snively all seem to have inside track on NHL roles. Will be exciting.
