The Washington Capitals have wrapped up the 2018 NHL Draft, selecting center Eric Florchuk from the Saskatoon Blades with the very last pick in the seventh and final round. In the nicest way possible, Mr. Florchuk is the NHL’s Mr. Irrelevant.

Florchuk, has played two seasons in the Western Hockey League with both the Victoria Royals and Saskatoon Blades. In 2017-18, spending time with both teams, he tallied 49 points in 71 games. This is the fourth player the Caps have taken from the WHL in this draft. This is notable because Caps assistant general manager and draft guru, Ross Mahoney, has extensive connections in the league as he once coached the Regina Pats.
Here are some highlights of Florchuk.
