More Cuts Made Yesterday?

We have not received official word from the Capitals, but per Tarik El-Bashir:

“Defensemen Jame Pollock and Josef Boumedienne and forward Joe Motzko were waived yesterday. Should they clear, they are expected to join the Bears. . . .”

Update @ 2:40pm: The Capitals have announced they have assigned Joe Motzko to Hershey. Jame Pollock is still listed on the official roster, but Josef Boumedienne is not.
Update @ 2:55pm: From Corey Masisak’s blog:

“Joe Motzko and Josef Boumedienne have cleared waivers. Motzko will join the Hershey Bears, but Boumedienne has not. A team spokesman said “likely Hershey” for Boomer, but he could decide to go back to Europe. Jame Pollack is still on the team’s official roster, which means he wasn’t on waivers yesterday, but he’s clearly not around, so it is likely he was put on waivers today.”

Update @ 5:20pm: From John Walton:

“The Caps also on Saturday assigned Josef Boumedienne to Hershey after clearing waivers. Boumedienne did not practice with the team Saturday, but did arrive in the dressing room at GIANT Center late this afternoon and met with coaches Boudreau and Woods.”

    Boumer in Hershey? That’s interesting…didn’t McPhee say that if Boumedienne didn’t make the cut, he’d go back to Europe?

    Thoughts from tonight’s presason game in Hershey:
    — Bourque looked great. Scored the first goal less than a minute into the game. Really buzzing around on the PP.
    — The Ice was also in pre-season form. Lots of slipping and sliding. When I was in Giant center earlier this week, they were having a food show there and there were hundreds of tables covering the ice. Jay Stewart, at the beginning of the third, slid like 10 feet into the empty Hershey net like he was a bowling ball.
    — A couple altercations between Chris McAllister and Brett Angel. In the first fight, McAllister seemed to get tangled up in his new sweater.
    — The Bears PK got a lot of work, as the ref seemed to call a lot of hooking penalties.

    — KARL Stewart. fro some reason, got him mixed up with Jay Leach, who is still around.
