15 - Number of players who played at least one game for the Capitals in the 2018 playoffs who were originally drafted by Washington (Nicklas Backstrom, Travis Boyd, Andre Burakovsky, John Carlson, Christian Djoos, Shane Gersich, Philipp Grubauer, Braden Holtby, Evgeny Kuznetsov, Dmitry Orlov, Alex Ovechkin, Chandler Stephenson, Jakub Vrana, Nathan Walker and Tom Wilson).

Capitals draftees accounted for 59.3% of the team’s goals (51 of 86), 65.8% of the team’s assists (98 of 149), 63.4% of the team’s points (149 of 235), and 100.0% of their goalie wins (16 of 16... duh) during their Stanley Cup run.

The next crop of Caps draftees takes shape this weekend, with the Draft starting tomorrow night and continuing on Saturday.
