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

With this being the last year [at the Coliseum], we'd love to try to get back to the dance like we did against Pittsburgh and prove ourselves and go even further. It's an important year.

— New York Islanders coach Jack Capuano
