Geoff Burke-US PRESSWIRE

Daily Washington Capitals news and notes: A six-point day for Caps hopefuls at WJC camp, sharpening the pencils for the 2013-14 forward line cards, and more.

Your savory breakfast links:

  • Crystal ballin' the Caps' 2013-14 forward lines. [CSNW]
    • Two forwards in particular need to make a mark this season. Mathieu Perreault and Jason Chimera, call your agents. [CSNW, PHT]
    • Speaking of MP85, he sets out his (Googletranslated) goals-n-expectations for 2013-14: Third line duties, 13 or 14 solid minutes per night with some time on the PP and PK units, and, just maybe, a contract extension when all is said and done. [Journal L'Avantage, via GoogleFrench]
    • A third forward, Stanislav Galiev, still needs to prove he can handle the AHL before the team even considers bringing him up to the show. [CSNW]
    • And here's a fantasy forward guide, for your virtual line-juggling entertainment. [Too Many Men on the Site]
  • The WJC Evaluation Camp kicked off with USA's split squads each dropping the first game to the Finns and the Swedes. Andre Burakovsky drew first blood for Sweden against Team White with a powerplaymål en route to a 4-2 win. Connor Carrick scored Team Blue's first goal with an assist from Riley Barber, who also had two more apples in a 6-5 overtime loss to the dangerous Finnish squad. [WCHB, USA Hockey, FanPost]
  • Haven't we been here before? Hello again, MetroPatrick Division. [Peerless]
  • The Reading Royals announced they have re-signed forward David Marshall. [HockeyFights]
  • So. Which first-overall draft pick had the best "most anticipated" rookie debut? NHL Network will air the debut games of the top five vote-getters this coming Saturday. Make your voices heard, people. [NHL.com]
  • If you're a Caps fan and always wanted to see the Hockey Hall of Fame in Toronto but could never choose a date to go, this coming August 22 would be a swell day to plan for. [HHoF]
  • Finally, happy 37th birthday to Jeff Friesen, happy 5-0 to Mike Siltala and happy 55th to Howard Walker.
