Washington Capitals Clicks: Evgeny Kuznetsov, Camp Battles

Happy Wednesday Everyone! Here are your daily links for the Washington Capitals.

The Washington Capitals schedule has been out for sometime now, but they have just released their television schedule.  The Capitals and Comcast SportsNet Mid Atlantic will cover a total of 75 games this year including the Winter Classic, which still doesn’t have a home.  The coverage will include 70 regular season games and 5 preseason games which is a record high.  The first and second preseason games against the Buffalo Sabres and the Philadelphia Flyers are set to be televised; Sept 21st and 22nd.  [Comcast]

Hersey Bears defenseman Mike Moore, may be new to the organization; as of July 1st, but he has some roots already with the Washington Capitals.  Having played for former assistant coaches within the organization as well as playing with Michale Latta before he was traded to Washington, Moore is set and ready to go for the season.  [The Patriot News]

Evgeny Kuznetsov began to get comfortable last season when he came up for a couple of games for the Washington Capitals.  As he played there was a rise in his comfort level.  With a new season set to begin and no determination on the 2nd line center, it is between both Marcus Johansson as well as Evgeny Kuznetsov.  Will Kuznetsov be able to handle the increase in pressure if he is made the 2nd center.  [The Hockey Buzz]

When training camps come along the first thing that pops into my head is position battles.  Which position battles will be the ones to keep an eye on this year? Who is going to be the 6th defenseman for the Caps? Which 4 will make up the top 4 defenseman? Who is going to be the 2nd line center? [Bleacher Report]
