2012 NHL Draft Results: Riley Barber First Pittsburgh-Area Player Selected

The 2012 NHL Draft is in full swing on Saturday and according to Dave Molinari of the Pittsburgh Post-Gazette, the area's first local product has been selected in the sixth round by the Washington Capitals:

Barber, who was born in the Pittsburgh area and now lives in Livonia, Mich., gave a verbal commitment in September to play college hockey at the Miami of Ohio. The right winger is also a member of the TEAM USA U-18 squad and is the son of Don Barber, who played 115 games in the NHL.
