Preview:

The Caps finish their rookie camp with a scrimmage against the Flyers rookies at the Flyers training facility in Voorhees, NJ. While Nicklas Backstrom has a spot on the big clubs training camp roster, the rest of the rookies will be looking to give the coaching staff a reason to keep them as well. From reports Sasha Pokulok has been playing well and seems to be recovered from the concussion issues he had last year. Michal Nuevirth has said he wants to turn pro and not return to his junior club in Plymouth. Karl Alzner and Josh Godfrey have both returned to the Caps following their participation in the Canada vs. Russia Super Series. The Flyers don’t expect any of their rookies to compete for roster spots this year, although Ryan Parent has been a standout in camp. Of note on the Flyers roster is former Caps prospect Matt Stefanishion who was let go following last season.
