Thursday morning, the Hershey Bears announced their schedule for training camp. Like the Capitals, all practices are free and open to the public. The Bears’ 2018-2019 regular season begins on October 6th.
The Bears, who missed the playoffs last season, will focus more on player development this season, giving more opportunities to younger players. With the Capitals returning almost the entirety of their Stanley Cup-winning roster, prospects are fighting less for a roster spot and more to be first in line should a player be called up.
Capitals prospects Lucas Johansen, Jonas Siegenthaler, and Tyler Lewington could all be on the initial training camp roster, which will be released in the coming days. Veterans Logan Pyett and Adam Morrison were signed recently.
