Capitals Trim Training Camp Roster to 35

Today the Washington Capitals have announced that they have trimmed their training camp roster down to 35 after sending the following players to Hershey of the AHL.

 

Sent to Hershey

#84 – Kristofers Bindulis (D)

#46 – Tobias Geisser (D)

#36 – Connor Hobbs (D)

#45 – Axel Jonsson-Fjallby (F)

#49 – Brett Leason (F)

#16 – Philippe Maillet (F)

#88 – Bobby Nardella (D)

#40 – Garrett Pilon (F)

#91 – Joe Snively (F)

 

In total the Capitals cut four defensemen and five forwards. None of the roster moves made today were that surprising. Both Brett Leason and Joe Snively were not going to make the opening night roster, and both will spend the season in Hershey to get a full year under their belts in the pros. Axel Jonsson-Fjallby should also be a main fixture in Hershey this season and also get a full year in North America to gain experience playing the North American style.

 

 

The Capitals are now carrying 19 forwards, 12 defensemen, and four goaltenders. The Capitals are still running two groups with the Blue group consisting of the majority of the Capitals opening night roster while the Red group features a decent number of the opening night roster as well.
