The Washington Capitals
 
Anton Gustafsson and John Carlson
Meet Cody Hodgson, Washington's 2008 first-round selections. Gustafsson was ranked 34th overall heading into the draft by ISS. He is a big power forward who is strong on the puck and plays very aggressive. He possesses great size and competitiveness. Carlson was ranked 21st by ISS. He is a solid two-way defenseman, who is physically strong, skates well and has a good shot. He displays a great deal of poise and has the skills to generate offence. With good physical strength, ISS says Carlson utilizes his size well during battles for loose pucks and position in all three zones.
