I can't believe that it's almost September, the month that brings the boys back to their D.C. home to shake off the summer blues at Training Camp! The Capitals just released the schedule for Rookie Training Camp and complete schedule for the veterans is coming soon.
From the team press release:
ARLINGTON, Va. – The Washington Capitals 2009 rookie camp and training camp will once again be held at Kettler Capitals Iceplex in Arlington, Va.
Rookie camp will begin Monday, Sept. 7, and will conclude with a road game against the Philadelphia Flyers rookies at 3 p.m. on Friday, Sept. 11, at Virtua Center Flyers Skate Zone in Voorhees, N.J. The game is open to the public and free of charge. This is the third straight year that Washington rookies will play Philadelphia rookies prior to training camp.
Veterans will report to training camp on Saturday, Sept. 12, and will be available for interviews and photographs at Kettler Capitals Iceplex that day. On-ice training camp activities will begin on Monday, Sept. 13.
I am sorry all you sports fans out there can't hear the sound of Hockey Mom's fancy feet dancing with joy - hockey season is almost here!
