Monday Caps Clips

Nick Laham

Daily Washington Capitals news and notes: Bäckis and MJ90 head to Team Sweden camp, the Caps' prospects return from World Junior camp, and Braden Holtby is still savoring his invite from Team Canada.

Your savory breakfast links:

  • It's déjà vu all over again as the New York (Broadway Edition) MetroPatricks renew their division ties with the Washington squad. [Peerless]
  • Alex Ovechkin is enigmatic? Inconceivable! The Columbus MetroPatrick beat writers will learn this lesson, eventually... [Columbus Dispatch]
  • ... though they could have just watched AO enigma his way to two goals and a defenestrated Belarusian in his very first NHL game. [Ted's Take]
  • Team Sweden's Olympic orientation camp gets underway today in Stockholm, with Nicklas Backstrom and Marcus Johansson on the invite list. [Sweden Hockey]
    • Speaking of Johansson, could the Caps have him on the trading block? [THN]
  • Braden Holtby is still a bit amazed by his Hockey Canada summons. [PHT]
  • Who's really facing tough competition? The answers may surprise you (but likely won't). [RLS]
  • The National Junior Evaluation Camp wrapped up on Saturday: 
  • Can Evgeny Kuznetsov make the jump from KHL to NHL? Right now, we'd settle for him making the jump onto a plane for D.C. [CSNW]
  • One highly touted European is already here and playing well. Want a hint? He'll tend the nets in Hershey this year. [CSNW]
  • Finally, happy 30th birthday to Jiri Novotny.
