Capitals release 2022-23 training camp roster and schedule

The Capitals announced Tuesday that 68 players will attend training camp ahead of the 2022-23 season. Camp is scheduled to begin Thursday at the MedStar Capitals Iceplex.

Washington’s squad includes 42 forwards, 20 defensemen and six goaltenders. Four players will join the team with injury designations: forwards Tom Wilson (knee), Nicklas Backstrom (hip) and Carl Hagelin (eye) as well as defenseman Alex Alexeyev (shoulder).

The final tally of 68 includes the 18 players who attended rookie camp in Arlington from Friday through Monday, highlighted by top prospect Hendrix Lapierre. Key off-season additions such as goaltender Darcy Kuemper, winger Connor Brown and center Dylan Strome will train with teammates outside of an informal skating setting for the first time.

Other notable players listed include forward Matthew Strome, brother of the aforementioned Dylan, and Sam Anas, a native of Potomac, Maryland. Head coach Peter Laviolette’s son, Peter Laviolette III, attended rookie camp and was also on the training camp roster.

Capitals training camp kicks off with their annual media day on Thursday. Their first preseason game is Sunday at home against the Buffalo Sabers.
