  • ... and the scrimmage lineups are available here. [NoVa Caps]
  • You know who’s looking good in camp? Jakub Vrana, that’s who. And he’s getting some time on Backstrom’s wing. [NoVa Caps]
  • Another guy making a good impression is Alex Chiasson, who brings size, veteran smarts and just a bit of desperation to his professional tryout. [CSNMA, WaPo]
  • Coach has his promising young blueliners riding shotgun with the vets. [WaPo]
  • Nathan Walker has earned his stripes in the AHL, and now he is pushing to finally break through to the big leagues. [THW, Rinkside Update (video)]
