Here’s a look at all of the players selected by the Capitals in today’s draft:

Pick #211 (7th Round): LW Oskar Magnusson

From Elite Prospects:

Magnusson uses tempo-swings to beat opponents on the outside before crashing the net with the puck. He quickly spots passing lanes and takes advantage of them. He’s also not afraid to challenge defenders 1-on-1 in big-ice situations, displaying a high level of creativity and confidence in his abilities.

Pick #179 (6th Round): Goaltender Garin Bjorklund

From Elite Prospects:

As a goaltender, one of the biggest keys to success is confidence, and Bjorklund has it in spades. He’s not afraid to make a snazzy glove save or toss in a pad stack just to spice things up. He’s got the agility and the toolkit. His hands are plenty active, and he’s got great conditioning. He’s got the longevity to endure even the messiest of performances in front of him.


Pick #148 (5th Round): Center Bear Hughes

From Elite Prospects:

The most exciting part of Bear’s game is that he’s, well, a bear on the puck. Strength allows him to win battles from disadvantage positions and shrug off checks. He keeps the puck across his hips, putting weight over stick and making him tricky to dispossess. With pressure bearing down, he integrates look offs and changes of pace to misdirect defenders.
