We are quickly approaching the start of the Washington Capitals 2022-23 season, with training camp set to start on September 22. Many of the Capitals prospects will report a week earlier for a “Rookie Camp” set to run from September 15-19 at MedStar Capitals Iceplex.
Several of the Capitals prospects have yet to finalize their team destinations for the 2022-23 season, and will likely be re-assessed during the upcoming rookie and training camps before final assignments are made. Here’s where we stand today:
NEW THIS WEEK
Bogdan Trineyev has made the opening night roster for Moscow Dynamo. He spent the last two seasons playing for all three of the organization’s teams and could still see the occasional reassignment to the club’s junior team. But for now, Trineyev, 20, will start in the KHL. Their season begins later this week.
Haakon Hanelt will return to the Gatineau Olympiques for the 2022-23 season. The team announced their final roster earlier this week. Hanelt missed a majority of the 2021-22 regular season with a shoulder injury, but returned for the Olympiques postseason. He needs a full (healthy) season in the QMJHL.
Oskar Magnusson will return to AIK in the HockeyAllsvenskan league. Magnusson played for AIK last season as well.
Ivan Miroshnichenko continued personal workouts (no team workouts or practices) over the summer and was listed on the Omsk Wings (VHL) opening night roster.
Dru Krebs will return to the Medicine Hat Tigers for his third season.
STILL TO BE DETERMINED
Martin Hugo Has will not return to Shawinigan in the QMJHL this season. As a 20-year-old defenseman who played last season, he is ineligible to return to league. He could receive a late assignment, or the Capitals may want to see more in the upcoming camps before deciding.
