Counting down the days until the 2014-15 season with a look at rookie workload over the years

Geoff Burke-USA TODAY Sports

48 - Number of days remaining until the Caps open the 2014-15 season. But it's also...

...the number of rookies in franchise history to play in at least 41 games (i.e. half a regular season) in their rookie year). Five of them are currently active with the Caps - Alex Ovechkin, Nicklas Backstrom, Marcus Johansson, Dmitry Orlov and Tom Wilson.
