Washington Redskins Announce 2013 Preseason Opponents

The Washington Redskins have announced their 2013 preseason opponents. Though the order of the games have been determined, specific dates and times for three of the four matchups are to be announced at a later date.

The team will open their preseason slate on the road against the Tennessee Titans between Aug. 8-11, then return home on Aug. 19 for a nationally televised game against the Pittsburgh Steelers on ESPN at 8 p.m. They’ll then have another home tilt against the Buffalo Bills between Aug. 23-25 before concluding the exhibition season on the road against the Tampa Bay Buccanneers between Aug 29-31.

Every game with the exception of the Steelers matchup will be broadcast on NBC4/Comcast SportsNet.

Despite the uncertainty of whether or not quarterback Robert Griffin III would see any action in the preseason, the Redskins still managed to draw a nationally televised game.  With a dynamic player such as Griffin and with the team coming off its first NFC East championship since 1999, it’s expected that they’ll receive more national exposure in 2013.

The NFL will announce its regular season schedule later this month.

Caps Wrap: Fehr set to sign; Wilson added; Schedule released; Laich hurting?

The Washington Capitals reportedly have an agreement with winger Eric Fehr to return to the club. According to those reports, Fehr signed a one-year deal worth $600,000, though the team has not announced the decision as of late Saturday night due to the signing of the Memo of Understanding that officially ended the lockout Saturday afternoon.

Fehr, 27, recorded 13 goals and 25 points in 21 games with HPK Hameenlinna in Finland’s SM-Liiga during the lockout. Fehr missed the first 20 games of the 2011-12 season as he recovered from yet another shoulder surgery and recorded just two goals and one assists in 35 games with the Jets last season.

Fehr, if healthy, could provide some scoring depth from the third or fourth line for the Caps, especially in a short season where injuries could provide challenges to the Caps depth. They don’t really have an abundance of NHL-caliber talent in Hershey this season, as evidenced by only two Bears, goalie Braden Holtby and defenseman Dmitri Orlov, being brought to D.C. for training camp.
___________________________

Washington invited forward Tom Wilson, one of the team’s two first-round choices in the 2012 NHL Draft, to training camp this week. Currently playing for Plymouth in the OHL, the 18-year-old Wilson was left off the roster of the Canadian entry for the 2013 World Junior Championship, despite his string showing this season for Plymouth.  He has 12 goals and 34 points (plus-16) with 59 penalty minutes in just 30 games.
___________________________

The NHL released the schedules Saturday, and you can find the Caps’ here. The Caps play 48 games in 99 days. Yup, that’s a lot of hockey packed into not a lot of time.

Vogs has a great piece breaking down the whole schedule, but they’ll play five games against two Southeast Division “rivals” (Winnipeg and Carolina) and four games against its other two (Florida and Tampa Bay). The Caps will visit Winnipeg three times (including games on back-to-back nights March 21-22) and will host Carolina three times. They’ll also play each other team in the conference three times.

The Capitals play two road games and one home game against Montreal, Ottawa, Philadelphia, Pittsburgh and the New York Rangers. The Capitals host two home games and play one road game against New Jersey, Toronto, Boston, Buffalo and the New York Islanders.

Highlights:

  • Caps host Pittsburgh on Super Bowl Sunday, Feb. 3
  • Eight sets of games on back-to-back nights
  • Consecutive home games against New Jersey, Feb. 21-23
  • Nine of 12 on the road from March 19 – Apr. 9
  • Five of last seven games at home, including last three

____________________________

According to this tweet by TSN.com’s Bob MacKenzie, Brooks Laich is “likely to miss 1st week or two” with an undisclosed injury. Laich has been skating by himself before the Caps unofficial practices this week at Kettler Capitals Iceplex.

Laich played in Switzerland during the lockout and Thursday wouldn’t talk about if he suffered any injury while playing there.

“I feel healthy…I feel good,” Laich said.

He skated for approximately an hour Thursday, most of it with no power since the power went out at Kettler before the informal practice started.  He left the ice once the informal practice started.

“Just getting in a little extra work,”  Laich added.  “Just making sure that everything’s good to go. Nothing major.”

NATS/SUNS: Hagerstown Suns 2013 Schedule

Syracuse Chiefs Tentative 2013 Schedule

The Syracuse Chiefs, the Triple-A affiliate of the Washington Nationals, are pleased to announce their tentative 2013 International League schedule.

Syracuse is slated to open the season on Thursday, April 4, on the road against the Lehigh Valley IronPigs. The Chiefs will embark on a seven-game season-opening road trip before returning home for an eight-game homestand. Syracuse’s home opener is scheduled for Friday, April 12, with a 2:00 PM home game against Lehigh Valley.

The Chiefs’ longest homestand of the season will take place from June 6 to June 16. Syracuse will play 10 consecutive home games over that 11-day span, taking on the Scranton/Wilkes-Barre Yankees, Pawtucket Red Sox and Toledo Mud Hens. The Chiefs are also scheduled for four separate eight-game homestands over the 2013 season.

Syracuse’s home schedule is evenly balanced, with the Chiefs playing from 12 to 16 home games in each of the season’s first five months. The team will then close out the season with two home games on September 1 and 2 against the Buffalo Bisons.

The Chiefs are also scheduled for three additional days off in their 144-game, 152-day season in 2013. The team is slated to play in three scheduled Sunday doubleheaders, on April 14 vs. Lehigh Valley, June 23 at Gwinnett and July 7 at Buffalo. Syracuse’s schedule includes 11 days off, including the International League All-Star break from July 15 to 17.

Tickets are still available for Syracuse’s two final home games of 2012 – a 7:00pm game on Saturday, September 1st and a 2:00pm contest on Sunday, September 2nd, both against the Rochester Red Wings. The Chiefs’ final fireworks display of the season will conclude Saturday night’s game. Tickets can be purchased in person at the Chiefs ticket office at Alliance Bank Stadium, by calling 315-474-7833 or online at SyracuseChiefs.com.
