Daily Washington Capitals news and notes: DevCamp's a'coming, sophomore Oates, and an unforgettable sight in Harrisburg.


Your savory breakfast links:

  • Caps head coach Adam Oates is looking forward to his sophomore campaign and wants to make it the first of many more. [WaPo]
  • The Caps make it official - July 8 through 13 are the dates for the 2013 Development Camp and Fan Fest. We are promised more scrimmages and a special guest appearance by Steven Oleksy. Hooray for a full week of squinting at hastily velcro'd nametags! [Dump 'n' Chase, CSNW]
    • Related, Hershey beat writer Tim Leone is kinda sorta hoping the Bears will have a new head coach in place by DevCamp kickoff. [@TimLeone]
  • Oh hai there NHL Awards season. The Lig is rolling out its honorees in special teevee presentations over two nights - all the awards that aren't Hart, Calder, Norris, Vezina, or Lindsay will be on Friday at 5pm (NHL Network), and then the Big Five on Saturday at 7pm (NBC Sports Network). To that end, you can revisit and vote on some of the best moments of Rocket Richard Trophy winner and Hart/Lindsay finalist Alex Ovechkin's 2013 season. [@WashCaps]
  • Breaking down Brooks Laich's season, during most of which he was actually broken down. [CSNW, and our take]
  • Breaking down a breakout season of sorts for Braden Holtby. [Peerless, plus our take]
  • Vogs sits down with Mathieu Perreault ... [Monumental video]
  • ...and Tom Wilson. [Ibid.]
  • Today in Pending UFAs. [USA Today]
  • Hockey logos plus Muppets? Want. [Puck Daddy]
  • It was Hershey Bears Night at the Harrisburg Senators' Metro Bank Park, with the Richmond Flying Squirrels in the visitors' dugout, and ... these ... gracing the home team. [@SenatorsBaseball]
  • Finally, happy 35th birthday to Matt Bradley and here's to the memory of Garnet "Ace" Bailey, who would have been 64 today.
