Every summer Capitals assistant general manager Ross Mahoney has one full week to reap what his scouting staff has sewn.

Through five days of development camp and two full scrimmage games, Mahoney is pleased with what he’s seen, especially from 2014 first-round selection Jakub Vrana.

Taken 13th overall on June 27 in Philadelphia, Vrana’s speed and creativity have been evident through the first two scrimmages. On Thursday afternoon he blew past a defenseman for a breakaway, and pulled a sick move on a shootout to score a goal.

On Friday morning, the 18-year-old Czech blasted a slap shot under the crossbar in an 8-3 rout for Team Red.

“That was a shot not a lot of people are going to stop,” Mahoney said. “But I also like that he was the first man back [on defense] and back-checked and disrupted the play. So he’s showing he’s a very determined young man as far as playing defense.”

Vrana’s linemate, Andre Burakovsky, scored 41 goals as a left wing for the Erie Otters of the OHL last season and has also been impressive while adapting to a new position: center.
