As the future of the Washington Capitals took the ice this morning at Kettler, there was a player not there. That player was the 28th overall pick in this years draft Lucas Johansen.
Johansen is “under the weather” today. Hopefully he knows enough to stay away from everyone else and comes in tomorrow. Johansen is one of nine players invited to camp who last played in the WHL.
Johansen played for the Kelowna rockets last season. He and Madison Bowey were teammates two years ago when Kelowna won the WHL Championship.
The 6’2″ defenseman will be looking to make an impact and show he can be valuable to the Caps going forward.
UPDATE: He arrived at the 4 pm session in workout clothes and did not participate in any on ice activities.
