Do the Caps have a plan?

Looking for a chance to see the Caps’ top prospects in the middle of the summer?

Rugged right wing Tom Wilson and the club’s entire 2013 draft class will hit the ice at Kettler Capitals Iceplex on Monday for a weeklong prospect development camp.

Capitals development camp is an annual summer session with on- and off-ice workouts designed to help players improve their games and allow the Capitals’ scouting and coaching staffs to evaluate their progress.

This is the seventh straight year that the camp is being held at Kettler. Previous camps have been held in Odenton, Md., and Hershey, Pa.

All on-ice sessions, including the four intrasquad games, are free and open to the public.

The weeklong activities will conclude with Fan Fest on Saturday, July 13, when Capitals defenseman Steve Oleksy and other Caps prospects will participate in an autograph session. There will also be an equipment sale and a free open skate.

Here is the daily schedule of next week’s camp:
