Topic - Travis Boyd
Taken in the 2011 draft, Travis Boyd stood out in his fourth development camp with the Capitals. More here from CSN Insider Chuck Gormley.
Last summer, prospect Travis Boyd drew praise from Washington Capitals general manager George McPhee for his smarts and guts during the the team's development camp. A sixth-round pick in June's draft, the young forward was a pleasant surprise.
Washington Capitals development camp is hockey in July — a chance for prospects to learn and to impress coaches, scouts and members of the front office. Saturday's scrimmage was the final chance to do that.
On Friday night the Washington Capitals made their biggest impact on the NHL draft by getting out of the first round and picking up a player in Troy Brouwer who can help right away.
"I'm still young and I'm pretty open about saying I'm going back to school next year," he said. "Both of us know I need another year to mature and get better, but one day I'd like to get to a point where I get a contract from them. Right now I want to have another good year and worry about that next spring."
Boyd, who will turn 21 in September, said he has not had any contract talks with the Capitals but is hoping a strong senior season will land him his first pro deal.
