The Washington Capitals have announced their 23-man roster for this year’s developmental camp, scheduled for July 7-12 at the team’s practice facility in Ballston. The sessions begin Monday at 9 a.m. with an on-ice practice for Team White, then continue through the week and culminate with intrasquad scrimmages on Thursday (4:15 p.m.), Friday (10:30 a.m.) and Saturday (10:30 a.m.). Coach Barry Trotz is scheduled to address the media each day.

Per Washington’s handy developmental guide, released Thursday, here’s the roster thus far, subject to change depending on any last-minute additions:


Among the names to watch:

>> Considered one of the top prospects in Washington’s system by Hockey’s Future, Burakovsky has a shot to impress the new regime and make a run at a roster spot this season. A late first-round pick in 2013, he notched 87 points in 57 games with the OHL’s Erie Otters last season.

>> Bowey was a 60-point scorer last season for the WHL’s Kelowna Rockets, where he served as team captain. He was a second-round pick in 2013. He and Burakovsky are currently under three-year entry-level deals.

>> Vrana and Vanecek were Washington’s first- and second-round picks this season in the 2014 entry draft, respectively, and were teammates on the Czech Republic’s under-18 team at the world junior championships.

>> The Capitals traded back into the third round to ensure Walker, the first Australian drafted into the NHL, remained in-house. Walker played for Hershey last season and was invited to Capitals training camp, but a contract snag kept him from signing an NHL deal.

>> The right-winger Barber spent last season with Miami (Ohio) University and was the United States’ captain at the 2014 world junior championships in Sweden, where he led his team with four goals in five games.
