Capitals Announce Training Camp Schedule and Roster

ARLINGTON, Va. – The Washington Capitals will begin their 2013-14 Training Camp at Kettler Capitals Iceplex on Thursday, Sept. 12, vice president and general manager George McPhee announced today.

Training camp will last 18 days with the NHL regular season beginning on Tuesday, Oct. 1. This marks the Capitals’ seventh training camp at Kettler Capitals Iceplex, the Metro-accessible, inside-the-Beltway practice facility that features two NHL-sized rinks. All on-ice sessions, like every Capitals practice at Kettler Capitals Iceplex, will be open to the public and free of charge.

The training camp roster will be broken up into three squads (Teams A, B, C) and their schedule will vary. Players will be available to the media at the conclusion of their on-ice sessions (approximate times are listed below). Those media members seeking specific players should check with the Capitals media relations department in advance for the best time to gain access to individuals as it will likely change daily. Head coach Adam Oates will be made available to the media following the final on-ice session of each day.

The Capitals complete training camp roster and schedule is attached and listed below. The roster must be trimmed to 23 players by Monday, Sept. 30. Unlike other professional sports, there is no mandatory schedule for making roster cuts.

The Capitals will open the 2013-14 regular season versus the Chicago Blackhawks on Tuesday, Oct. 1 at United Center. The home opener will take place on Thursday, Oct. 3 against the Calgary Flames at Verizon Center.
