|(6/14/17) Graovac was traded to the Capitals from the Wild on Wednesday for a 2018 fifth-round draft pick, the Minneapolis Star Tribune reports.|
The 24-year-old forward dressed for 52 contests with the Wild last season, notching nine points (seven goals, two assists). The big-bodied forward also supplied 54 hits over that span while averaging 9:50 of ice time. Should he earn a roster spot out of camp, Graovac figures to provide the Capitals with a physical presence. He has a history of some offensive success at the AHL level, but it has yet to translate to consistent production at the top level of competition.
