The Washington Capitals’ final three picks on day two of the 2022 NHL Draft

The Washington Capitals held three picks in the fifth, sixth, and seventh rounds of the 2022 NHL Draft. The selection came to the pick numbers 149, 181 and 213.

With the picks, the Caps added two more forwards and one more defender. They come from Montreal with a total haul of five forwards and two defenders.

Jake Karabela – C, Guelph (OHL)

Karabela is another talented attacking forward that the Caps added to their organization in this draft. He’s a great skater, works hard and is really hard to hit the puck. The 5’7, 172-pound center had 48 points in 65 games with the Storm in his debut season in the OHL.

Ryan Hofer – RW, Everett (WHL)

Hofer, the brother of St. Louis Blues prospect Joel Hofer, is a WHL overager drafted into the third draft for which he was eligible. He’s a tall winger (6’1″, 181 lbs) who has had seven fights in the WHL over the past two seasons. He had 58 points in 67 games for the Silvertips last year and turned 20 a few months ago.

David Gucciardi – LHD, Michigan State (NCAA)

Another overager who was unselected in last year’s draft, Gucciardi was playing his first season at Michigan State and is now a member of the Capitals organization. He is a defender known for his puck control and vision. Before joining MSU, he played two seasons in the USHL.
