The Washington Capitals have acquired the 159th pick in the draft and goalie Edward Pasquale for No. 164, No. 192 and a 7th-round pick in 2015.
Pasquale was selected by the Atlanta Thrashers in the fourth round of the 2009 NHL Entry Draft. An RFA on July 1st, Pasquale posted a 17-13-1 record during the regular season and would later go on to see some Calder Cup action from the bench during the AHL final series between St. John’s and the eventual champions Texas.
At 23 years old, Pasquale has yet to prove he’ll ever make it past the AHL. With Philipp Grubauer, Sergei Kostenko and Brandon Anderson already in the system, it will be interesting to see if he’s even offered a contract for the upcoming season.
