Caps development camp: Miele lifts White to shootout win

Invitee Andy Miele scored a pretty goal in regulation and an even prettier one in the shootout to help White beat Red, 3-2, in the last of three scrimmages at Caps' summer development camp. Miele had a big day for a player who's listed at 5 foot 8, 175 pounds...

Q&A with Brooks Laich

I caught up with Brooks Laich today after he completed a grueling hour-long workout here at KCI that had many campers looking on in awe. Here's what the Caps forward had to say: Q: Why are you here again? [He's come to summer development camp the past three seasons.]...

Caps' Marcus Johansson bounces back

Stanislav Galiev converted a nifty deke in the shootout this morning to lift White to a 6-5 shootout victory over Red in the second scrimmage of Capitals development camp. Galiev, a third-round pick last month, also scored in regulation. But the biggest surprise was the emergence of Marcus Johansson, who...

Kuznetsov stars in summer camp scrimmage

The first of three Red-White scrimmages ended in a hard-fought 4-4 tie that was highlighted by two goals and a primary assist from Evgeny Kuznetsov, the Caps' first round draft pick last month. The scrimmage also featured a pair of goals from invitee Sean Wiles (Alaska-Anchorage), a fight between 6-8...

Caps sign winger Brian Willsie

The Caps made a depth signing today, inking veteran winger Brian Willsie to a one-year, two-way contract. It will be Willsie's second stint in Washington. The 32-year-old had 19 goals and 22 assists in 82 games with the Caps in 2005-06. His production dropped off the next two seasons with...

Goalie Braden Holtby has learned to be patient

While much of the chatter surrounding the Caps' summer development camp has been about Marcus Johansson, there's another prospect who's close to being NHL-ready: goaltender Braden Holtby. There's just one problem. Two of the NHL's top prospects at his position -- Semyon Varlamov and Michal Neuvirth -- happen to occupy...

Boudreau on Johansson: 'He sees the play real well'

A number of prospects impressed Coach Bruce Boudreau on the opening day of summer development camp. But one player - Marcus Johansson - stood head and shoulders above the others. "It's my first look at him, and he carries himself like he's going to be a very good player," Boudreau...

Video: Marcus Johansson

Much of the discussion leading up to this week's development camp has focused on 2009 first rounder Marcus Johansson and whether he's ready to contribute in Washington this season. It's going to be a while before we know the answer to that question. But we know this much: the 19-year-old...

Development camp underway (updated)

With summer development underway out here at KCI, I wanted to pass along some information regarding group rosters, since many of you won't be able to attend both sessions each day. Group A is stacked, featuring Evgeny Kuznetsov, Dmitri Orlov, Anton Gustafsson, Braden Holtby, Cody Eakin, Joe Finley and Stefan...
