Washington Capitals hockey is officially underway at Medstar Capitals Iceplex. Top Capitals prospects, including Connor McMichael and Hendrix Lapierre, took the ice. Also joining the mix: 2021 draft picks Vinnie Iorio and Dru Krebs. A handful of free-agent invitees participated as well. (The Capitals full rookie camp roster can be found here).
