A number of scrimmages take place today as National Hockey League Development Camps come to an end.
The Washington Capitals will hold their final scrimmage of camp this morning at 10:00 am local time at the Kettler Capitals Iceplex.
“Tomorrow's going to be a big scrimmage and I'm looking forward to that,” wrote Saint John Sea Dogs forward Stanislav Galiev in his blog entry yesterday. “I'm a little bit sad, because camp is almost over. We're going to get ready for tomorrow's game and then we're leaving after the game.”
