Caps Announce 2011 Development Camp Roster and Schedule
The Washington Capitals have announced the official schedule and roster of players for the 2011 Caps’ Development Camp. This year’s camp will be held at Kettler Capitals Iceplex in Arlington and is slotted to begin this Monday, July 11th, and will run until Sunday, July 16th, also the date of the Caps’ Fan Fest event. All of the Development Camp will be free and open to the public.
Notable players to be attending camp this year include F Cody Eakin, F Stanislav Galiev, F Dmitry Kugryshev, D Dmitri Orlov, and F Mattias Sjogren. In addition, all four players drafted by the Caps in this year’s 2011 NHL Entry Draft, F Travis Boyd, D Garrett Haar, D Patrick Koudys, and G Steffen Soberg, will be attending camp this upcoming week.
One interesting fact, Caps’ highly talked about Russian prospect Evgeny Kuznetsov, the Caps’ first round pick in the 2010 NHL Entry Draft, will not be in attendance at this year’s Development Camp. At this point, it still cannot be confirmed or denied whether or not his absence this year is due to a very long honeymoon or possibly is due because of an unpredictable diva-esque personality, which some of his fellow countrymen also possess.
