With the injury bug decimating the Washington Capitals’ locker room, the club has summoned a quartet of Bears to bolster the lineup. The following Hershey players will be in D.C. tonight:
- Karl Alzner
- Chris Bourque
- Sami Lepisto
- Graham Mink
No official word on who among these farm-purging call-ups will be in tonight’s lineup.
Update: per Tarik, the Capitals have assigned Chris Clark (broken arm) and Jeff Schultz (broken finger) to the Long-Term IR, which means they’ll be out for a minimum of 10 games. It also clears approximately $3.4 million in cap space for the Hershey crew.
Update: per Corey, the Capitals retroactively placed Alexander Semin and Mike Green on the injured reserve and are able to be removed on Friday.
