Evgeny Kuznetsov and Nicklas Backstrom have returned to DC. Kuzy on his offseason: It’s been ‘kind of tough to stop’ celebrating.
The Washington Capitals shortest offseason ever is almost over.
This week, Evgeny Kuznetsov and Nicklas Backstrom were the latest players to return to the Washington DC area and join the team’s informal skates at MedStar Capitals Iceplex. The sessions already include Lars Eller, John Carlson, Nathan Walker, Shane Gersich, Pheonix Copley, and Swiss defensemen Jonas Siegenthaler and Tobias Geisser. The practices are run by strength and conditioning coach Mark Nemish.
Kuzy admitted in an interview on Friday that being a Stanley Cup champion made training over the summer more difficult.
