Caps Fanfest Scrimmage (7 of 8)

Barry Trotz wants to turn Caps Development Camp into a more polished affair, with NHL players coming in as mentors and a focus on improving little aspects each player’s game. On Saturday, the team concluded the annual camp. In addition to the final scrimmage of week, the Caps also their annual fanfest in a packed Kettler Capitals Iceplex.

Though Team Red was stocked with first round picks Andre Burakovsky and Jakob Vrana, the White Team took hold of the game in the third period, scoring third goals on the route to a 7-4 win. After the game, Caps owner Ted Leonsis presented prospect Madison Bowey with the winner’s trophy, before the team held a bit of mock Stanley Cup celebration. Check out my photos below.

    Riley Barber was by far the best player on the ice today. Primed for a big year at Miami.

    Hmmm… 6-4? I guess everyone was right that the Caps should have drafted more DEF. ;)

    I wasn’t there, so I am going to guess that they scored three goals in the third? Rather than third goals.
