NHL Draft Results: Connor Carrick Selected In 5th Round

Four current or future Michigan hockey players have been selected so far in the 2012 NHL Draft. The latest is incoming freshman defenseman Connor Carrick, who was selected by the Washington Capitals with the 137th overall pick (in the fifth round).

Carrick, like fellow incoming freshman defenseman Jacob Trouba, was with the USA National Team Development Program the past two seasons. He played on the Under-18 Team in 2011-12 and had seven goals and 11 assists for 18 points in 53 games. A season earlier, he was with the Under-17 Team and had one goal and six assists for seven points in 36 games.

Carrick, as mentioned, is the fourth player with Michigan ties to be selected in this year's draft. Trouba was the first when he went ninth overall to the Winnipeg Jets. On Saturday, both Phil Di Giuseppe and Cristoval "Boo" Nieves were picked in the second round.
