NHL Draft
Raleigh, NC - June 26, 2004

What a day! The Crew ventured south to Raleigh for the NHL Draft and were not
disappointed! The day kicked off with the Caps selecting Alexander Ovechkin with the
number one overall pick in the draft. After a thoroughly fascinating day at the draft, the Crew
buses headed to downtown Raleigh and the Sheraton City Center, site of the Washington
Capitals post-draft party! Thanks to all who helped put together a great event! Certainly a top
notch day all the way around for the team and its fans!

 

Here are the highlights from ESPN's coverage of the Draft. Yes, ESPN used to cover hockey.
