So Many Hershey Bears in Virginia

The Capitals players are showing up little by little in Ballston, Virginia for an unofficial conditioning camp. Added to the pack are a few fellas from Hershey to show off their Bear talent.

We thought those of us who love the Hershey Bears might want a peek at who is here so far. It may be too early to be prophetic just yet. That will come as we follow them more. Follow us too for more data as their talents unfold in front of us!

We would like to go on record stating that Axel Jonsson-Fjallby is so much more than flow. The Caps signed him to three-year entry level contract for a reason. Even though the guys were taking things light today, he still has one heck of a powerful shot. Could be good for Hershey on the power play?


Lucus Johansen was looking ok today. If memory serves us, he missed the development camp scrimmage for an undisclosed reason.

We are excited to see Connor Hobbs back for training camp. He impressed us during his time at development camp. He could be on the short list for a defenseman spot; but if not he will continue to grow his craft with the Bears while waiting for his chance.


Jonas Siegenthaler, Tobias Geisser, Christian Djoos, Shane Gersich, Nathan Walker, and Vitek Vanecek were among those we recognized working out on Wednesday.

Keep watching along with us for more photos of your favorite Bears in Virginia. Although most are going to disappear from 8 to 11 September for the Rookie Camp in Florida.
