Flyers-Caps face off in Rookie Game on Sept. 9

With a full season on the horizon, the Flyers will resume a tradition with the Washington Capitals before Training Camp even begins.

The Flyers-Caps will face off for the sixth time in a 'Rookie Game' on Monday, Sept. 9 at 3 p.m. ET.

The game typically marks the end of Flyers Rookie Camp, leading into the main NHL team's Training Camp.

Washington will play host to this year's game at their practice facility, the Kettler Capitals Iceplex, but Flyers fans can watch the game via LIVE webcast at PhiladelphiaFlyers.com (more details to follow…)

The good news for Flyers fans is that the rookie squad owns an overall 3-2-0 record in the game over the last six years, taking the last meeting by a 3-2 score two years ago in front of 10,000 Flyers fans at the Wells Fargo Center.

The bad news is that the home team has won each game and neither team has strung together wins two years in-a-row. See recaps & results to the right...

The game serves as a first-glimpse of future Flyers in game action.

The 2011 game saw the debut of Sean Couturier after being drafted earlier in the summer, and Brayden Schenn, who was acquired by the Flyers just prior to the Draft.

Other present day Flyers who have made their debut in Orange & Black in the annual game include the likes of: Zac Rinaldo, Jason Akeson, Oliver Lauridsen, Tye McGinn and yes, Flyers captain Claude Giroux in 2007.

What fans can expect this year is a strong likelihood that 2013 first round draft pick, Sam Morin, will see his first action as Flyers property, while the team's 2nd round draft pick from 2012, goaltender Anthony Stolarz, could see time between the pipes.

On the bench for the Flyers will be Terry Murray, the club's head coach of their AHL affiliate, the Adirondack Phantoms, joined by his assistant coach, former Flyer Riley Cote.

The final roster won't be finalized until Flyers rookie camp, which starts in early September, while dates and details for camp will be announced at a later time. But one thing you can count on is competition.

Unlike Development Camp in the summer, prospects come to the Fall camp with one goal - to make the team.

And the Flyers front office will certainly be paying attention.
