    Ovechkin, banged-up Capitals return to ice for start of camp

    The Washington Capitals opened training camp Thursday without two of the team's top players. Longtime Alex Ovechkin running mate Nicklas Backstrom and big winger Tom Wilson are expected to miss at least the first portion of the season recovering from injuries. Wilson could be back as soon as December after rehabbing a torn ACL in his left knee while Backstrom is hoping to play sometime before the end of the season following hip resurfacing surgery.



    Over the last decade or so, the first day of Caps training camp has been one of the most grueling and dreaded days of the year. Players would report for the first day of practice, and that 45-minute session would be immediately followed by a taxing "skate test" that would leave them utterly spent and in some more extreme cases, losing the contents of their stomachs.
