Players to watch

F Cody Eakin: The 2009 draft pick impressed the Washington brass immensely at last year’s training camp before returning to the Western Hockey League. Eakin, 20, will turn pro this fall and already has leadership experience: He served as captain of the Swift Current Broncos before being traded to, and eventually winning the WHL championship with, with the Kootenay Ice.

F Mattias Sjogren: The oldest participant at this year’s camp, the undrafted 23-year-old was signed by Washington in June after winning a championship with Farjestad in the Swedish Elite League. Sjogren (6-foot-2, 214 pounds) will be looking to make a positive first impression on the coaching staff as he competes for a spot on the NHL roster.

D Dmitri Orlov: Set to start his first full season in North America this fall, the 19-year-old 2009 draft pick is arguably the most highly-regarded defensive prospect in the organization. Orlov signed an entry-level deal last March and played 19 games with the American Hockey League’s Hershey Bears after winning a gold medal with Russia in the World Junior Campionship, where he set a record for most assists by a defenseman (eight).

F Stanislav Galiev: The 2010 draft pick won the Memorial Cup with Saint John of the Quebec Major Junior Hockey League this season. After he showcased his smooth offensive skills for another season, expectations are even higher. Galiev, 19, recorded 37 goals and 28 assists in 64 games with Saint John in 2010-11.

G Philipp Grubauer: Perhaps the next in line to emerge from Washington’s pipeline of home-grown goaltending talent, the 2010 draft pick posted a 22-13-3 record with Kingston in the Ontario Hockey League. Grubauer, 19, won the Memorial Cup in 2010 and is praised for how he utilizes his size (6-0, 180) and athleticism.
