The Capitals hold picks in every round except for the second and seventh rounds.
Meanwhile, the first day of free agency will be on October 9.
Beginning of free agency (Oct. 9) fell on the same day as Day 1 of the draft, so one or the other had to be moved. As @coreypronman said, Oct. 6 and 7 it is. Evening of the 6th, during the day on the 7th. Free agency on the 9th. https://t.co/Rg1a2P3VNF
