I think September 17th. I guess rookie camp is the preceding week. I guess this is vaguely related: I'm going to be in Georgetown this weekend, and I may try to go see some of the players skating at Kettler if there are a bunch of them there. Does anyone know when they typically skate?
Relatively speaking unimportant even within the hockey news with today's news in Russia, but Caps rookie camp roster being released today.
Sounds like players report on 10th, with first on-ice session on Sunday, 9/11
Some of the free agent invites not under contract (as per current reports) with Washington, Hershey or South Carolina expected to be on the roster:
per the Q list released recently, expected to attend, as well:
Benjamin Casavant (update: Casavant is not on the roster released; likely a mistake by the person putting together the Q list)
I'll update once I see the actual roster. This is based on reports pre-release of the roster and media reports about the roster.

looks like with the exception of Ludwig (and de K who is under contract with Hershey) all of the FA invites were in attendance at the development camp in July. Also, it looks like all of the junior/pro free agent (not NCAA for obvious reasons) invites from development camp are returning except for the Q goalie, Gervais-Chouinard.
I typed this quickly based on the list provided so typos may be included; anyway, also subject to change depending on the rookie camp promotions and injuries, but looks like they accounted for some of the rookie camp promotions
