  • Some of this year's Caps picks will have a trip to Florida coming up in September, as the Caps are going to participate in a prospects tourney with the Predators, Lightning and Panthers. [Predators]
  • Alex Ovechkin is back where it all began for his renaissance - Vegas, baby... [CSNW]
  • ... and a couple of his teammates think he should bring home some hardware. [NHLPA]
  • Some of the biggest offensive stars in the game talk about how to get more offense back in the game. Ovi's solution? Shoot more. (I hope his teammates are reading.) [Toronto Sun]
  • The Caps will be unveiling new alternate jerseys later today. New? [@MonumentalNtwrk]
  • "Capitals Coach Barry Trotz will discuss the performance of Washington's NHL franchise after his first year at the helm and will look ahead to next season at a National Press Club luncheon Wednesday, July 8." It will no doubt be an afternoon that's as informative and entertaining as it is nutritious. [NPC]
  • The Caps have a couple of Fall internships that might be perfect for you. [HockeyJobsHockeyJobs]
  • Nathan Paetsch was a Caps draft pick who never signed, but has played 167 games in the NHL and now has avoided having to wear an orange uniform for his part in an illegal gambling ring. (Though now that I mention it, he might be an upgrade to the Flyers' blueline...) [Democrat & ChroniclePuck Daddy]
  • Finally, happy 32nd birthday to Brooks Laich, whose "Best of 2014-15" is... short but sweet.
