Hundreds have stopped by Kettler Capitals Iceplex in Arlington, Va. this week to check out the Capitals' rookie camp. For the team's Fan Fest today, they expect even more.

Caps officials anticipate about 3,000 people to come watch the team's top prospects scrimmage. That's quite a turnout considering the stars won't even be there. But maybe it's not so surprising. The Capitals have carved out a sizable niche in the DC sports market, selling out every home game for the last two years.

Fanfest runs until 2:30 today.
