  • Mopping up after the conclusion of DevCamp:
    • Monumental video highlights. [Final Scrimmage (Period 1, Period 2, Period 3, Postgame Interviews) FanFest, Steven Oleksy, Coach Oates]
    • Notes and pictures from Day Five/Scrimmage/Fan Fest. [Dump 'n' Chase, Caps Outsider (and again), Hockey Shopped, RMNB, Madison Bowey blog, Riley Barber blog]
    • Just before camp began, Caps first-rounder Andre Burakovsky granted a don't-miss interview to Swedish outlet Expressen. Highlights: he came stateside early to train with Marcus Johansson, a quick jaunt to a shopping mall did not work out as expected, and somebody needs to have a chat with him about his headgear. [Expressen.se, via GoogleSvensk]
    • Collector card titan Panini America has Burakovsky's rookie card teed up and ready to go. [Panini]
    • The new coaching staff of the Hershey Bears can breathe a sigh of relief now that their Team Red earned the DevCamp split with Team White at the final scrimmage. [Patriot-News]
    • Say, Tom Wilson, where are you going with that armload of Troy Brouwer's twigs? [WaPo]
    • Defenseman Jaynen Rissling is turning 20 soon and therefore isn't required to return to the WHL Calgary Hitmen in the fall... but he probably will. [RMNB]
    • Hulking Slovakian defenseman Michal Cajkovsky signed a PTO with Hershey late last season but never played in a game - he came to camp hoping to make the squad this season. [Patriot-News]
  • Whither Dmitry Orlov? [THW, with more on Orlov in this FanPost]
  • A contrarian view - the case for NOT signing Mikhail Grabovski. [GM on a Couch]
  • Looking at those late round picks. [Peerless]
  • Finally, wishing Bryan Helmer a very happy 41st birthday.
