Brooks Laich (groin) wasn't on the ice for the first day of training camp.
"He's not quite ready to go," Capitals GM George McPhee said. "We're going to do this right and make sure that he's 100 percent before we get him out there. There are some injuries that you can play through if it's not going to make it worse. But if it's an injury that's going to get worse by playing with it, then we got to be careful." Laich sustained the injury while playing in Switzerland.
