Preliminary Prospect Roster And Organizational Depth Chart For The 2022-23 Washington Capitals

Things are finally beginning to take shape for the Washington Capitals 2022-23 season, and that includes their prospects. We’ve seen a few prospects exit the system (Brian Pinho, Shane Gersich, Pheonix Copley), but other hopefuls have just arrived.

As we get set to begin tracking and evaluating and updating you on their progress, we start with the basics, and that the Capitals initial prospect roster and Capitals organizational depth chart.

Both of these tools will evolve between now and October 12th (opening night), but it’s helpful to establish a baseline or starting point in the season.

As noted, initial assignments could change for a number of the prospects. We will update the roster frequently in the next couple of months.

You’ve probably seen the next graphic before, but the two go hand-in-hand as we begin our 2022-23 tracking and evaluations. The following is the Capitals organizational depth chart by position.

No time for rest for certain prospects. Next up on the prospect calendar is the rescheduled 2022 IIHF World Junior Championships from August 9th through the 20th in Edmonton. We will have a reporter on hand for the games and have all of the latest coverage before, during and after the tournament, so stay tuned.

    I think the pipeline is fine but think if Lars E is let go, then that money can move to the blueline. Connor M takes his spot.

    They have 5 years to develop a new G….

      We were just talking about that, the remaining chess pieces to be moved this summer and before the trade deadline. Still a couple of roster moves coming, IMHO

    Reloaded and ready to rock!

    Left wing depth is very thin. Malenstyn is the only left wing with a two-way contract that will likely start the season in Hershey. The only other left winger on the Hershey roster is Mason Morelli & he is on an AHL contract.

    Right defense is very inexperienced at the AHL level with the exception of McIlrath.

    I’d be surprised if Frank actually plays center with the Bears. I think he probably starts on the wing. Sutter is in a position to be let go I think. He just hasn’t found a niche and there are guys who are simply better than he is. He’ll have a hard time cracking the Hershey lineup

    • Jon Sorensen says:

      Lapierre has played left wing as much as center in last two seasons, so he can help on that side, but yes, I’d expect an additional veteran signing on the left side.

    I would like to see HL at C assuming he gets to the NHL… lets see…
    in 4 years, I hope the 3Cs are CM, Protas and HL…

    • Dan+Hornbaker says:

      hmmmm, I like in theory for sure the 3 C’s, but I don’t think any are projecting as a 1. Hopefully I am wrong. But I am thrilled if 2 of them become our centers and sign a 1 or a 2. At least one of our centers down the road has to be star quality.

    A lot not signed. I know that some are deliberate because of where they are right now. Which ones should we be worried about?
