Entry Draft Notes

Washington also holds either Boston's 2nd in 2012 or Colorado's 2nd in 2013 (Washington's option) from Varlamov trade; supposed to notify Colorado as to Washington's choice a week before the draft.

At this time, one known compensatory pick in second round of 2012 draft for not signing a first round draft pick, held by San Jose, so 31 picks in the second round of the 2012 draft.

2013 draft picks - Rounds 1-6: WAS pick - 7th: Conditionally traded to Nashville if Caps sign Taylor Stefishen by June 1, 2012 (now 2013) deadline; 2nd Colorado, IF they select 2013 second rounder rather than Boston's 2nd rounder in 2012
