2,362 - Number of regular season NHL games played by the 34 players drafted in the seventh round by the Washington Capitals, led by Andrew Brunette (1,110 games), Keith Jones (491) and Johnny Oduya (463), with another eight players (including Stefan Della Rovere, Andrew Gordon and Brad Schlegel) seeing NHL action. (It's also worth noting that one of the great players in franchise history was taken in the eighth round.)

Yesterday, the Caps acquired an extra seventh-round pick from Pittsburgh in exchange for Tomas Vokoun.
