Galiev Blogging From Caps Camp

Saint John Sea Dogs forward Stanislav Galiev is blogging from Washington Capitals Development Camp. The Russian forward, along with fellow camper Patrick Wey, posted their first entry today on the Capitals website as camp kicked off at the Kettler Capitals Iceplex in Arlington.

Here is an excerpt from Galiev’s portion of the post:
Last night at the hotel we had a good dinner and afterwards I went over to Orlov and Kugryshev’s room to play FIFA Soccer but since I beat them every time they got mad at me and just said “get out and goodnight.” There is no point in playing against me – I always win.
Read the full post over at the Capitals website.

The prospects have been split into two groups. Group A practiced at 9:45 am and Group B at 2:00 pm. We believe Galiev is in Group B.

Entering his second Development Camp with the Capitals and following a solid season in Saint John, Galiev will be put under the microscope much more than last year. The Washington Post lists him as a ‘player to watch’ and the Caps blog Japers’ Rink has him in the ‘all eyes will be on’ category.

The camp continues tomorrow with Group B practicing in the morning and Group A taking to the ice just before noon. Wednesday will feature an intrasquad scrimmage.

If you are on Twitter, SN friend Emily from Japers’ Rink hooked us up with a list you may want to follow for camp coverage.
