33 - Number of attendees at this year’s Development Camp, which kicks off today at Kettler and will wrap up on Saturday with a scrimmage as part of the team’s FanFest.

Of those 33 players attending camp, 22 of them are Caps’ draft picks, including all seven picks from last weekend’s draft in Dallas. The veteran of the group is Brian Pinho (2013 Draft), who is at his sixth Caps’ Development Camp and is coming in off a new entry-level deal with the team.

16 players from the Caps’ Cup-winning squad were drafted by the organization, and most of them attended at least one Development Camp; the Caps are certainly hoping that this week’s squad will represent the core of future championship teams, as well.
