What does Cam Schilling bring to the Capitals organization?

The Washington Capitals are trying to help their defense in the future and they have done that by signing Miami (Oh.) defenseman Cam Schilling to an entry-level contract on Tuesday according to TSN Sports' Bob McKenzie.

The Capitals are always on the lookout for new talent. Schilling has accrued 57 total points in his four years of playing with the Redhawks. He has scored eight goals in his entire collegiate career as of Tuesday.

The Capitals have been long in need of some good solid defensive players, and Schilling appears to be a player that the Capitals think can be a new defensive force. He is 6'2" and 197 pounds, so he definitely has some size to work with. If the Capitals can coach him the right way, Schilling could be a great contributor for Washington.
