Walker spent a majority of his time in the Capitals organization playing with the team’s AHL affiliate the Hershey Bears, but did eventually crack the Capitals lineup, becoming the first Australian to play in the NHL.
Walker was waived by the Capitals twice during his tenure with the organization, the last time coming on November 4, 2018 (here). The forward was placed on waivers the previous season and was subsequently claimed by the Edmonton Oilers on December 1. The Oilers later placed him on waivers and the Capitals claimed him on December 20 (here).
