The Washington Capitals offseason is going to really start heating up at the middle of the week and towards the end. On Wednesday we find out who the Seattle Kraken will take from them based on who the Caps left exposed. On Saturday, the Caps will be participating in the NHL Draft with their first pick coming in the second round at 55th overall.
We started looking at who the Caps could target with their 55th pick. Here’s more information on the NHL Draft as well as the complete first round order. In this slideshow we’ll take a look at who we think the Caps will select with their five picks.
#55 Tristan Broz
Tristian Broz is a center from the USHL out of Fargo listed at six foot and 176 pounds. He is expected to attend college this upcoming season at the University of Minnesota. Elite Prospects compared him to a shark which I think is as cool of a comparison as you can get:
"Broz is a player with an attacking mentality. He’s like a shark sniffing out blood in the water when he’s off-the-puck in the offensive zone, circling the perimeter, waiting for soft ice to emerge, or charging headlong to the net-front as low-to-high passing plays develop. He reads developing plays, creates options for his linemates, and adapts well during cycle plays."
