NHL Entry Draft 2012 Results: Capitals Fifth Round Pick Connor Carrick Headed To College, According To Report

The 2012 NHL Entry Draft is continuing on Saturday at the CONSOL Energy Center in Pittsburgh, following a first round full of activity on Friday night. Teams are burning through their selections in rounds two through seven, with the draft already entering the sixth round as the noon hour passes on the east coast.

The Washington Capitals have made four selections so far on Saturday, most recently Connor Carrick in the fifth round with the 137th overall pick. As it turns out, it appears the first defenseman taken by Washington in the draft won't be playing for the Capitals anytime soon. Via Stephen Whyno of the Washington Times:

Carrick is the second member of the United States' Under-18 Development squad that the Capitals have selected in the 2012 draft. Sounds like the team may be waiting on him for awhile, as he dons the maize and blue for the Wolverines.
