Profile:
The Capitals selected center Brent Gwidt early in the sixth round of the 2006 draft. The 18-year-old pivot played for Lakeland High School in northern Wisconsin in 2005-06.

After signing a contract tender with the North America Hockey League’s Wichita Wildcats, Gwidt was chosen in the first round of the USHL’s Entry Draft by the Indiana Ice. Gwidt will play for the Ice in 2006-07.

What Others Are Saying:
Indiana Ice head coach Jack Bowkus on Gwidt: “He is a big, strong winger with great upside. His strength and size will fit in nicely along the wings.”

Gwidt’s high school coach Tony Borden as quoted in the Jan. 19 edition of The Sawyer County Record: “At 6’2” and 200 pounds. Brent has a great physical presence on the ice. He has exceptional speed for a player his size and continues to learn how good of a hockey player he can be. His presence at practice and his great drive and determination increase the tempo of our practices immensely.”
