Sammi’s Daily: Capitals Updates, Camp Notes, Kane-Tkachuk, Subban & PTOs

Published

Capitals forward Daniel Sprong

The Washington Capitals will return to the ice on Friday for their first official camp of 2022-23, as the prospects take part in rookie camp. Thursday will consist of physicals and off-ice testing, but on Friday, on-ice sessions will begin as several top names take the ice.

Hendrix Lapierre leads the group, as he is a man on a mission to make the opening night roster for the second consecutive year. Only this time, he wants to earn a permanent stay. Joining him are good friends Vincent Iorio and Haakon Hanelt, Peter Laviolette III, Alexander Suzdalev and more.

All the while, the team continues their informal skates, with the goalies getting acquainted with one another, players looking to improve their skating and one injured name working toward a big comeback. And, across the NHL, trade rumors and other headlines continue to brew.

Here are all the latest news and notes from D.C. and beyond:

Washington Capitals

NHL

  • Evander Kane and Matthew Tkachuk don’t like each other at all, and Kane has kept the feud alive and continues to slam Tkachuk as he leaves Alberta and heads all the way down to Florida. (WHN)
  • Phil Kessel has landed in Vegas and looks… well, different in a Golden Knights sweater. Vegas Golden Knights (VHN)
  • Former Capitals coach Lane Lambert spoke with the Islanders media about his expectations for this season, and there were some interesting takeaways. New York Islanders (NYIHN)

Sammi’s Top Shelf Takes

  • Daniel Sprong has signed a PTO with the Seattle Kraken. Seattle has a lot of former Capitals on the roster going into 2022-23, and it’ll be interesting to see how it works out there and if Sprong can make the roster following his trade there last season.
  • Peter Laviolette III has looked great this summer. An excellent skater who’s been working with Wendy Marco, and he has good hands, great hand-eye coordination and strong work ethic. I wouldn’t be surprised to see him get an AHL deal down the road. The Washington prospects also love having him around.
  • It remains to be seen where P.K. Subban will end up.
