We’re still in the first half of Development Camp, which means drills and getting-to-know-you exercises as opposed to the later schedule of scrimmage!scrimmage!scrimmage with a brief break for skating assessment.  With the drills comes a more relaxed atmosphere amongst the players, and it’s a sentiment that translates well to the captured image.  Of course, this being hockey, there will always be degree of competition that never really goes away, resulting in a marvelous array of “thinking/concentrating” faces.

Before letting the photos speak for themselves, however, one quick note – Goaltender Brandon Anderson did not take part in today’s on-ice activities, due to an injury suffered during Monday’s session.  Per the Caps, they’ll re-evaluate him on Wednesday to assess whether he’s recovered enough to get back on the ice.

This year's Official Team Bromance: Tom Wilson & Andre Burokovsky. First round draft picks from 2012 and 2013, respectively.

However, D-Camp isn't all fun and games. Occasionally a defenseman (Connor Carrick) takes a header into a goaltender (Saunders).

To the surprise of many, Sergey Kostenko is one of the prospects attending this year. Despite rumours of a shift to the KHL, the Caps hold his rights and are treating him as they would any other un-signed prospect.

To wrap things off, here's a glamour shot of the biggest name at this year's camp - Tom Wilson.
