After not having a single pick in the first three rounds, the Capitals were finally on the clock early Saturday afternoon with the 120th pick. With that pick, they selected Tobias Geisser, a young defenseman from Switzerland. 

Geisser is 6-foot-4 , 201 pounds and shoots left handed. Elite Hockey Prospects mentioned on their site that Geisser is a “two-way defenseman with excellent size and mobility. Sees the ice well and plays crisp passes to spark a team’s transition game. Has a long reach and shows a smart defensive game, while keeping his plays simple.”
