The Capitals Place Travis Boyd On Waivers

The Washington Capitals announced Sunday morning that they have placed forward Travis Boyd on waivers. Earlier on Sunday the Capitals also announced that defenseman Martin Fehervary was re-assigned to Hershey. Boyd did not suit up in the team’s first three games.

Sunday’s moves are an attempt by the Capitals to get under the league mandated salary cap of $81.5 million, when Evgeny Kuznetsov officially returns from suspension, and Michal Kempny returns to the active roster.

Defenseman Jonas Siegenthaler was also re-assigned to Hershey, but was done so only as a “paper move” to save salary cap space for today and possibly Monday.

It’s likely that Kuznetsov will be officially added to the roster today or Monday, depending on when the Capitals are officially under the salary cap. He will most certainly be in the lineup Tuesday against the Dallas Stars.

Michal Kempny has been practicing with the team and listed as “day-to-day”.
