Preseason kicks off tonight

The first of 3 preseason games is tonight at 7:05 in Wilkes Barre against the Baby Pens. The Capitals reassigned Nycholat and Holtby leaving the Caps with 28 players (not counting Patty McNeill). That means there will be at least 5 more players arriving from Washington in the next week.

So far the (camp) roster looks something like this (I apologize if I miss anyone as I am not sure I know all the camp invitees):

  • Braden Holtby
  • Todd Ford
  • Jared DeMichiel
  • Josh Godfrey
  • Johann Kroll
  • Dustin Stevenson
  • Dylan Yeo
  • Patrick Cullity
  • Joe Finley
  • Sean Collins
  • Zach Miskovic
  • Patrick Wellar
  • Wes O’Neill
  • Trevor Bruess
  • Boyd Kane
  • Joel Rechlicz
  • David de Kostrazza
  • Anton Gustafsson
  • Jake Hauswirth
  • Nikita Kashirsky
  • Dmitry Kugryshev
  • Ashton Rome
  • Francois Bouchard
  • Kyle Greentree
  • Grant McNeill
  • Brian Willsie
  • Keith Aucoin
  • Andrew Joudrey
  • Lincoln Schrock
  • Jordan Pietrus
  • Steve Pinizzotto
Players expected in Hershey some time soon that are still in Washington:
  • G Dany Sabourin
  • D Brian Fahey
  • D Patrick McNeill (injured but listed on Caps roster)
  • F Jay Beagle
  • F Mathieu Perreault
  • F Matt Hendricks
and, while long shots, still possibly...
