Your savory breakfast links:

● Previewing super defensive stud Karl Alzner's 2012-13 season. [Peerless]

● As the CBA negotiations (or lack thereof) drag on, many teams have cancelled their rookie camps. The Caps are not among them... yet. [CSNW]

● One of the guys who would be attending such a camp is Caps' prospect Connor Carrick, whose adjustment to his new team is going swimmingly so far. [Plymouth Canton Patch]

● Allentown, PA is making a push to become the "Best Minor Sports Town" competition. Reigning champ Hershey-Harrisburg (and its Washington-based parent clubs) might have something to say about that. [Morning Call]

● After spending the last few weeks state-side, Alex Ovechkin is headed back to Moscow for a little family time. [Dump 'N Chase]

● Ovi made sure to lend a few words of wisdom to DC's latest rookie phenom, Robert Griffin III, before the Redskins opened their season yesterday. [CSNW]

Wes Johnson, distinguished PA announcer for the Caps, continued the NHL-NFL synergy trend by appearing in a commercial alongside Ravens linebacker Ray Lewis. [RMNB]

● Finally, happy 46th birthday to Kevin Hatcher and happy 59th to Nelson Pyatt.
