Caps Today 8/27

Posted on August 27, 2013

The 2013 U.S. Men's National Team Camp continues at Kettler Capitals Iceplex today. Today's event is sold out, as ticket holders will receive several exclusive opportunities. Fans will have a chance to skate on one of the two rinks for 30 minutes, receive autographs from players (between 9-11 a.m. at two locations in the Kettler complex) and watch the Wounded Warriors sled hockey game (10-11 a.m. on Capitals practice rink). In addition, all attending will get to view the on-ice ceremony hosted by Kathryn Tappen of the NHL Network (11:30 a.m. on Capitals practice rink) which will include giveaways, the introduction of all players at the camp and the unveiling of the 2014 Nike Olympic jersey. All ticket holders will also receive a limited edition puck, souvenir scarf, camp program, American flag, and exclusive pre-order access to the Nike USA Hockey Olympic replica jersey. Nearly 1,200 fans are expected to attend today’s festivities.
