The Washington Capitals have seen several of their players take the ice this offseason, whether it be for more training, fun summer leagues or charity events. And now, several current — and former — Capitals are taking over yet another summer league.

Hendrix Lapierre, Anthony Mantha and Daniel Sprong are putting up impressive numbers up front, and Zach Fucale is serving as a team captain in the Living Sisu Pro League. The LSHL is a 3-on-3 summer pro hockey league for top NHL/AHL players and top women’s players. Games are every Tuesday.

Fucale is the captain of Team Uptown Wealth Management M. That team, which Fucale drafted, also consists of Washington teammates Sprong and Lapierre.

Right now, former Washington forward Sprong, who is still a UFA, is the points leader with 20 points (12 goals, eight assists) in four games. Lapierre has three goals and seven assists through two games so far. Anthony Mantha, meanwhile, is lacing ’em up with Team Accent Insurance M and has five goals and four assists through two games so far. He has also earned player of the game honors.

Other top NHLers, including Kris Letang, Nick Suzuki and Jonathan Huberdeau are also taking part in the 3-on-3 summer hockey. It takes place at Hockey Etcetera in Montreal, where Lapierre and others train during the offseason.

Beyond the 3-on-3 hockey, other Capitals are staying active on the ice. Nick Jensen and Nic Dowd are skating in Da Beauty League. Jensen has had a hat trick and has five points so far, while Dowd has a goal and assist in the annual star-studded summer league in Minnesota. Alex Ovechkin and Dmitry Orlov recently played in a couple of charity games, and also skated in former teammate Alex Semin’s Farewell to Hockey Game. In that match, Ovechkin had a hat trick.
