The Caps drafted center Garrett Pilon born in Mineola, NY, in the third round, 87th overall, pick in the 2016 NHL Draft. He is 5’10” and 174 lbs.
Pilon, 18, is the son of former Islander defender Rich Pilon. Unlike his father, Garrett is a center. Last season with the Kamloops Blazers (WHL) he had 15 goals and 32 assists for 47 points in 71 games. He also had 3 points in 7 playoff games.
Expect him to spend some time with Kamloops before he heads to Hershey. Both of the Caps picks are from the WHL.
