Washington Capitals prospect Nathan Walker can't wait to get hit at training camp. No, really.
Walker, 21, underwent surgery for a torn ACL in January, so he wants to test it with contact. He's quite a ways from making the full roster. That said, he certainly has time, as he was the 89th pick of the 2014 NHL Draft. Aug 30 - 12:02 PM

The Washington Capitals drafted the first Australian ever when they selected Nathan Walker in the third round.

The Capitals were well aware of Walker as the 20-year-old played 43 games with their AHL affiliate in Hershey this past season, scoring five times and adding six assists. Walker fell in love with hockey when he saw the movie "The Mighty Ducks" and his family moved to the Czech Republic when he was 13 to further his career. The only way this story could be better would be if the Anaheim Ducks selected him for a real Hollywood ending.
