Capitals Announce Rosters for Rookie Camp and Training Camp
ARLINGTON, Va., – A total of 71 players will be on the ice at Kettler Capitals Iceplex in the upcoming weeks for the 2009 Washington Capitals rookie camp and training camp, vice president and general manager George McPhee announced today.

Twenty-three players will participate in rookie camp, which begins Monday, Sept. 6, with a 10:30 a.m. practice and runs through Friday, Sept. 11, when the rookies visit Vorhees, N.J., for a scrimmage against the Flyers’ rookies at Virtua Center Flyers Skate Zone.

Training camp begins Sunday, Sept. 13, when 48 veterans – 32 of whom saw action for the Capitals last season – will join the rookies to prepare for the upcoming 2009-10 NHL season. In between practices and off-ice workout sessions, the Capitals will play seven preseason games in preparation for the regular-season opener Oct. 1 at Boston.

The public is welcome to attend every practice, free of charge, beginning Sunday, Sept. 13.
