As a rookie, the 23-year-old had a goal and seven points in 25 games with the Capitals during the 2012-13 season.

The 6-foot-2, 195-pound defenseman also played in the American Hockey League for Hershey, where he led the team's blueliners in goals (16) and points (31). Kundratek was named to the AHL Eastern Conference team squad for the 2013 Dunkin' Donuts AHL All-Star Classic.
