Lastly, Washington Capitals rookie camp begins this morning at 11:30am AST. The Washington Post has named Stanislav Galiev one of the players to watch at camp.

“Like Orlov, Galiev has been in town for several weeks now to train with strength and conditioning coach Mark Nemish,” writes Katie Carrera. “It shows dedication that doesn’t go unnoticed by coaches, and neither does the additional strength Galiev displays on the ice. While he is eligible to return to the QMJHL next season, Galiev has the possibility to impress enough to earn a lengthy stay in training camp and preseason appearances.”
