We’re Almost There

About a week and a half from now, the walls of the Kettler Capitals Iceplex will be filled with the sounds of pucks hitting boards and skates cutting ice. The Caps today released the schedule for the team’s upcoming rookie camp and training camp, and the first skates hit the ice on the morning of Sat. Sept. 8 when rookie camp begins. The freshmen will skate on their own for four days before facing the Philadelphia Flyers’ rookies in a scrimmage at Vorhees, N.J. on Sept. 12.

The rest of the Washington roster is slated to hit town on Sept. 13, with camp beginning in earnest on Sept. 14. The first of seven preseason games is Sept. 20 in Carolina, and the home preseason opener is Sept. 25 against the Hurricanes.

My kids went back to school today. My son’s team has already had its first two practices. September is mere hours away. We’ve made it through another long summer. Let’s hope next summer is much shorter from a Capitals’ perspective.

Here’s the slate:

    Our long national nightmare is at least over.

    It’s all good news. Time to let the players sort things out. The Front Office has done their job, the fans have been talking and blogging for months, now let’s see how things go.

    I am hoping for a great season; it promises to be lots of fun. I’d love to see the VC rocking with fans decked out in Caps sweaters and making some noise.

    Regards,
    Doug
