Development Camp Blog: Riley Barber Day 4

by Staff Writer / Washington Capitals

By Riley Barber

We had a pretty relaxing day today. We got up early and had a nice quick skate, had lunch and then got ready for the scrimmage. It was good to have a relaxing type of day before the game rather than having a workout before.

Today’s scrimmage was definitely more high-paced than the one yesterday. I think today, most of the guys weren’t as nervous as yesterday. So overall, we were making better plays today. We’ve played well to get two wins so far so hopefully we can keep it going.

During the times where we haven’t had that much going on I’ve pretty much been hanging out in my teammate, [Chris] Joyaux’s, room and watching a few movies. HBO is usually the go-to [channel]. We’ve also been walking around the [Ballston] Mall a bit.

I haven’t had enough free time to visit downtown D.C. on this trip yet but I was able to go down there after the camp last year, so I’ve seen the monuments before.
