Your savory breakfast links:

  • The Caps started Day 2 with four picks; after a couple of trades to move up, they ended it with three new Caps prospects, starting with Brett Leason at #56. [Rink, NoVa Caps, RMNB]
  • They then selected Leason’s teammate Aliaksei Protas, whose nickname is the Viper. Which is amazing. [Rink, NBCSW, StarsandSticks, RMNB, NoVa Caps]
  • The Prince Albert Raiders, WHL team of Leason and Protas, provided some helpful insight into their dynamic duo:
  • After Leason and Protas, the Caps wrapped up the day by once again trading up to snag Czech blueliner Martin Hugo Has. [Rink, StarsandSticks, RMNB]
  • We break down each of the three picks made by the Caps yesterday. [Rink (Leason, Protas/Hugo Has)]
  • Reviewing a fairly quiet first round, including grades, winners, and losers. [NHL, NoVa Caps, Rotoworld]
  • Hear from the GM and assistant GM on their work on Day 2... [Caps video (MacLellan, Mahoney)]
  • ...and from the three kids they selected. [Caps video (Leason, Protas, Hugo Has)]
  • The second day was much busier for the League, and somewhat busy for the Caps. [Vogs, Caps, NHL]
  • Looking back at the Caps’ five biggest draft busts of the last 19 years. [StarsandSticks]
  • It’s official: the salary cap for the 2019-20 season has been set at $81.5 million. Which... sucks. [NHL]
  • Finally, happy 36th birthday to Mr. Julianne Hough.
