Several readers have asked about which selections the Capitals will have in the 2011 NHL Entry Draft in June. Here are the details:
The Capitals have five picks, which is tied for the fewest (2010, 1979) in franchise history, starting with the 26th overall selection. Washington will then have selections in the fourth, fifth, sixth and seventh rounds of the draft.
Washington dealt its second-round pick in a 2010 trade for Joe Corvo and sent its third-round pick to Florida as part of the deal for Dennis Wideman at this season’s trade deadline.
