Capitals sign 2012 draft pick Carrick

The Washington Capitals on Monday signed defenseman Connor Carrick to a three-year, entry-level contract.

Carrick, a 2012 fifth-round pick (No. 137) had 12 goals and 32 assists in 68 games with the Plymouth Whalers of the Ontario Hockey League last season. The 5-foot-11, 185-pounder also had 18 points in 15 OHL playoff games.

Carrick also had a strong showing in August at USA Hockey's National Junior Evaluation Camp, and could earn a spot on the United States team that will play in the 2014 IIHF World Junior Championship.

Quote of the Day

I remember the first time at Wrigley Field all of us had the long johns, the turtlenecks and the extra equipment because we were afraid of being cold. Halfway through the first period everybody's ripping everything off and we just ended up wearing what we would normally wear for a game at the United Center.
