Ovechkin joins Capitals’ prospects during first day of rookie camp

As this year’s crop of Capitals’ prospects took to the ice for the first official practice of rookie camp at KCI there was somewhat of a surprising face in the crowd.

Alex Ovechkin joined the rookies for the first 20-25 minutes of their workout Sunday morning, participating all of the drills Coach Bruce Boudreau and the rest of the staff threw at the group. If nothing else, it has to be a neat experience for all of these young draft picks and free agent invitees to share the ice with the Capitals’ star.

--Goaltending prospect Steffen Soberg will not attend rookie camp after all, according to a team spokesman. Soberg, who was selected by Swift Current in the CHL import draft, is still deciding whether to play in North America or Europe next season.
