The Washington Capitals are starting to get banged up as today senior vice president and general manager Briam MacLellan has announced the following moves:
Placed on Injured Reserve
Carl Hagelin (LTIR, eligible to be activated on Dec. 2nd)
Nic Dowd (IR, eligible to be activated on Nov. 21st)
Re-assigned to Hershey
Vitek Vanecek (G)
Called Up from Hershey
Beck Malenstyn (F)
Michael Sgarbossa (F)
Tyler Lewington (D)
Ilya Samsonov (G)
Will Not Play Tonight
Nicklas Backstrom (F, Upper Body)
With the following moves the Capitals are feeling the sting of their injuries and crunch of the salary cap as well. Plus with Garnet Hathaway’s status for tonight and possible other games in doubt until after his hearing, it’s suffice to say that tonight’s lineup against the New York Rangers will be an interesting one to see.
