Sergei Kostenko’s mask features a surprising amount of English on it, not all of which makes sense.

Day four of Caps Development Camps got a lot more interesting than the previous day, with a fight, two penalty shots, and nine goals.

Team Red beat Team White in Thursday scrimmage by a final score of 6-3. Team Red’s goals were scored by Matt Bailey, Greg Miller, Cam Wojtala, 2012 first round pick Tom Wilson, and two from David Vallorani.  Team White’s three goals were scored by David Civitarese, Michael Quinn, and Christian Djoos.

Russian draftee Sergei Kostenko played in his first scrimmage after arriving yesterday from Russia and impressed with his performance for Team Red today, stopping tough shots through three periods, including a penalty shot attempt by blue-chip prospect Filip Forsberg.

My photos from today are below.

    Oates probably did want to kill you, some people just want to watch the world burn 🙂

  • What does that sign behind Oates say?

    Says “Kettler Capitals IcePlex” a bunch of times, and there are a few images of the Capitals logo. 😛

    Looks like the bottom three words say “no public access” – that’s totally a guess. No idea what the words above it say…..

    Something along the lines of “For Your Safety, NO PUBLIC aCCESS.” But my eyes are aged.
