Capitals sign Minnesota Duluth centre Caleb Herbert, 2010 5th-round draft pick

ARLINGTON, Va. - Minnesota Duluth centre Caleb Herbert signed a two-year, entry-level contract with the Washington Capitals.

The team announced the deal Friday.

The 22-year-old Herbert was a fifth-round draft pick in 2010. He spent the past three seasons in college at Minnesota Duluth, leading the team with 31 points and 85 penalty minutes this season.

Herbert will go to Hershey of the American Hockey League.

Quote of the Day

It's pretty crazy, but believe me when I say we didn't draft these players with the mindset we had to because they had good hockey-playing dads. It just turned out that way. But we're certainly glad they're a part of our organization.
