As the Capitals held a morning skate to prepare for their contest against the Kings, one notable player was missing. Nathan Walker wasn’t there and soon we would learn as to why. The Capitals placed him on waivers with the intent of sending him down to Hershey if he clears. Other teams have 24-hours to claim him.

Walker hasn’t gotten much playing time since the beginning of the season. He only appeared in one of the Capitals last nine games and only seven total games this season. He was mostly a healthy scratch.
Walker made NHL history at the beginning of the season by becoming the first Australian-born athlete to play in the NHL. He even scored in his first game.
