This morning, the Washington Capitals released the roster for their 2016 Development Camp which runs from June 28 (tomorrow) through July 2 (Saturday). As we noted over the weekend, Caps 2015 first round pick Ilya Samsonov will be attending his first camp with the Capitals while 2016 first round pick Lucas Johansen will also be making his Ballston debut.
Other notables include top defense prospect Madison Bowey and Bears standout Riley Barber. All of the team’s 2015 and 2016 draft picks will also be attending.
This year, the official Development Camp shirts feature a mock presidential seal on the back, with the Latin words on the back Fortitudo. Structura. Disciplina. We are vigorously debating whether or not this is real Latin.
