After choosing Chandler Stephenson in the third round of the 2012 NHL Entry Draft on Saturday, the Washington Capitals have made two fourth round selections, the 100th and 107th picks overall. The first choice, via Katie Carrera of the Washington Post:

Born in Italy, Di Pauli's family moved to the United States when he was in seventh grade so the youngster could further pursue a hockey career.
With the 107th choice, Washington added a Notre Dame product, in winger Austin Wuthrich. Via Mike Vogel of washingtoncaps.com:
