Saturday Caps Clips: Hockeyville Caps @ Jets Game Day

Kevin C. Cox

Daily Washington Capitals news and notes: Building Belleville's Hockey Capital, and ushering in the 2013-2014 preseason.

Your savory breakfast links:

  • Game on! Preview of tonight's preseason Hockeyville Hoedown with former division mates Winnipeg Jets from Vogs, plus some notes on the Jets' expectations (they're playing a bunch of their kids) here, and be sure to check out our SB Nation partners over at Arctic Ice Hockey for more from the other side of tonight's match-up.
    • What's this? Preseason Caps games on the teevee? Huzzah! Tonight's game is on NHL Network at 7pm Eastern. The rest of the schedule is here --> [Capitals]
    • Who's this? It might well be the team's new second-line centerman Mikhail Grabovski, joining the team in Belleville after his US visa first was and then was not approved. A Monday appointment at the US Consulate awaits. Also awaiting? Misha's new teammates. [CSNW]
  • Notes and assorted whatnot from Day Two of training camp out at Kettler:
  • Coach Oates wasn't done with Russia after he toured Moscow. Next stop - a flight to Chelyabinsk and a "good will" visit with top prospect Evgeny Kuznetsov. [NBC4, WaPo]
  • Marcus Johansson wanted to be in DC for the opening of training camp. His new bridge contract assured that he was. [CSNW]
  • Olie Kolzig has three young and talented goaltenders to mentor and mold - but how will he find all of them enough ice? [ESPN]
  • Uh-oh, Alex Ovechkin. Looks like the League means to drop the uniform hammer on its MVP. [Icethetics]
  • Speaking of Ovi, he has a simple request. Dynamo is a no-go, and please stop making the Caps' PR team nervous. [RMNB]
  • A two-year contract extension meant Jack Hillen's journey back to DC included a trailer full of furniture for his new house... [Dump 'n' Chase]
  • ... and Mike Green has a fiancee, wedding plans, and a new non-bachelor pad in McLean. [DC Sports Bog]
  • Among Chlorine's other fine attributes, it can apparently skate like the wind. [Peerless]
  • Finally, happy 63rd 65th birthday to Orest Kindrachuk and happy double-nickel 57th to Craig Laughlin. (Stick tap to Caps Outsider for the assist!)
