The Capitals never picked a player in the first round of the NHL Draft at Excel Energy Center in St. Paul Minnesota. But they did get a player that can be infused to the line up right now in Troy Brouwer.
Brouwer, a right winger that has a ring, scored 17 goals, had 36 points last season with the Chicago Blackhawks. He also had 8 playoff points during Chicago's Stanley Cup run.
The Capitals will not choose again until the fourth round (117th pick overall) barring any other trades.
