Playing careerEdit

He played junior hockey for the Regina Pats of the WHL, serving as team captain his final year (2010–2011).[1]

He was selected by Washington Capitals in the sixth round (175th overall) of the 2009 NHL Entry Draft. He signed his three-year entry-level contract with the Capitals on March 19, 2011, just after the Regina Pats concluded their 2010–11 season.[2]

In the 2016–17 season, Mitchell made his NHL debut on April 9, 2017 in the Capitals regular season finale against the Florida Panthers.[3]

As a free agent from the Capitals having spent 6 years within the organization, Mitchell opted to continue his tenure as captain of the Hershey Bears in the AHL, securing a one-year contract on July 10, 2017.[4]

Following his eighth year with the Bears in 2017–18, Mitchell left the club as free agent. Over the summer, Mitchell remained un-signed before opting to continue his career in Europe, agreeing to a one-year deal with Slovakian club, HKm Zvolen of the Tipsport Liga, on November 25, 2018.[5]
