Washington Capitals training camp is underway. It’s that time of year where everyone is gearing up for the new hockey season. Naturally, there are a ton of storylines heading into the most important Capitals season to date.
The roster will look a lot different one year from now, especially on the defense. Alex Ovechkin is chasing goal scoring history and could slide into the number two spot this year. And finally, the Caps have a competent goaltender.
It’s going to be a fun season filled with lots of ups and downs as the core is now one year older.
#3 Capitals connections
This training camp and preseason you’ll see a ton of connections when it comes to the Caps. Dylan Strome is brand new and looks to fill in the shoes of Nicklas Backstrom as the second line center.
Not only is Dylan participating in this training camp, so is his brother Matthew Strome who signed an AHL deal with the Hershey Bears. Strome is on a one year prove it contract.
Not only that but head coach Peter Laviolette’s son, Peter Laviolette III will also take part in camp after looking good this summer at development camp and the recently completed rookie camp.
