With illness and injury befalling the Capitals, speculation was rampant that a forward would be recalled sometime ahead of tonight’s game. Since Hershey was coming off a three-in-three, Paul Carey’s healthy scratch last night set off rumors he would be recalled. That finally came to fruition this morning when the Capitals and Bears made it official.
This will be Carey’s third recall this season. In three games this year for the Capitals, Carey has yet to notch a point, but in 28 games with the Bears, he has recorded 25 points. He scored his tenth goal Saturday at Giant Center against the Utica Comets.
Earlier this year, we highlighted Carey in our Meet the Prospects column. You can find that article here.
