With Evgeny Kuznetsov remaining in Russia’s Kontinental Hockey League for the next two years, the Washington Capitals turn their attention to a few other top prospects beginning with development camp next week.
Both first-rounders from the 2012 draft, No. 11 pick Filip Forsberg and No. 16 Tom Wilson, will be in attendance, along with 2010 third-rounder Stan Galiev. The Caps on Tuesday announced the roster of 22 organizational prospects who will take part in development camp July 9-14 at Kettler.
Among 2012 picks, only fourth-rounder Austin Wuthrich (Notre Dame) and goaltender Sergei Kostenko (Russia) won’t be in attendance.
“I’d like to see the guys we drafted,” general manager George McPhee said Monday. “Then try to forecast where they might be this year and next year and the following year. I have a feeling these kids aren’t very far away.”
The rest of the invitees will be revealed next week. Max Iafrate, son of Al Iafrate, and Australian-born Nathan Walker, are reportedly set to be among them.
