Not everybody that has been skating with the Capitals during training camp this week will be on their roster when the team officially opens the season next month. Some will be with the Hershey Bears, while others will be back with their junior teams. The team has sent out a press release with the newest camp roster on it, that also reflects the cuts they have already made.
Patrick Cullity, David de Kastrozza, Joe Finley, Todd Ford, Anton Gustafsson, Jake Hauswirth, Nikita Kashirsky, Dmitry Kugryshev and Ashton Rome have all been assigned to the Hershey Bears.
While another five players - Samuel Carrier, Brett Flemming, Stanlislav Galiev, Philipp Grubauer, Garrett Mitchell - will be returning to their junior teams.
The roster now stands at 47, which is still far to big for the regular seasons. There are many more cuts, or reassignments if you want to be gentler about it, expected to be announced in the coming weeks. We'll have all the latest as it breaks.
