Minor news out of Washington but a bit personal. The Washington Capitals signed defenseman Connor Carrick to his entry level contract. Carrick played out of Arctic Ice Arena with the Chicago Fury at the same time I was working in the pro-shop. He also attended Carl Sandburg High School before going to play for the US NTDP’s U17 squad; he was a freshman while I was a senior at Carl Sandburg High School. We aren’t close buddies, but as acquaintances I’m still rooting for him to be a regular for the Capitals in the near future. Congrats to Carrick, you’re representing Orland Park very well!
