The NHL Draft is here. The Caps have 5 picks entering. I expect them to draft 4 players. I believe the Caps will trade the number 22 overall pick tonight for that top-6-forward we have been looking for. The picks the Caps have are as follows:
Round 1 pick 22 #22 overall
Round 3 Pick 1 #62 overall
Round 4 pick 22 #113 overall
Round 5 pick 22 #143 overall
Round 6 pick 22 #173 overall.
Capitals` General Manager Brian MacLellan said he is open to trading the 22nd pick and I expect it to happen. This is the information you need on the draft.
