Caps Fan Fest Recap

Today was the last day of Caps Development Camp and the Caps annual Fan Fest. The day ended with a scrimmage between Futures Team Red and Futures Team White. I was lucky enough to be able to go and watch the scrimmage. Both teams fought till the bitter end but Team White ended up pulling though going up 6-4 late in the third period, then capitalized on an empty netter to go up 7-4. Team White won the scrimmage and also the Futures Caps Cup.

The day also consisted of little kids running around with air brush tattoos, taking photos with Slapshot, getting autographs with prospects, and skating on the freshly zambonied Kettler Ice.

Below are some of the photos I snapped from today’s activities. Definitely recommend you check this event out next year!
