Capitals Prospects in the World Juniors

Here's a quick look at players in the Washington Capitals system who will (or could) be making their way to Saskatoon and Regina (the city that rhymes with fun), SK, for the 2010 World Junior Championship, beginning on Boxing Day (December 26th) and concluding on January 5th.  Stats are year-to-date with each player's respective club.

Final rosters for all of Canada, Sweden, and the United States will include Caps prospects.  Two Caps draftees remain on Russia's preliminary roster, which appears to still need a bit of trimming.  As linked earlier this week, Puck Prospectus provides a nice preview of the tournament.
