With the 117th pick in the NHL Draft, the Washington Capitals went to Geneva, Switzerland to draft Damien Riat. Riat played for Swiss-A league Geneve Servette.

He is 19-years-old, an even six-feet tall, a right-handed shot, and he plays left wing. Riat played 45 games last season, scoring nine goals and 12 assists for Servette, two goals and two assists for Switzerland’s U20 team at the IIHF U20 Championships, coming in fifth in their group.

Riat is set to play another year for Geneve next season. Another Swiss draft pick from last year by the Caps, Jonas Siegenthaler, is expected to arrive at Development Camp this week.
