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.

I've been getting frustrated lately, and the only thing keeping me sane was the team winning and other people stepping up and scoring. Then you just kind of let it go and realize you can end the series with one shot, that frustration goes away for a brief moment, and that's what happened.
