The Capitals also announced the team’s taxi squad to start the 2020-22 season.
Capitals taxi squad (as of Jan. 13): Daniel Carr, Brian Pinho, Martin Fehervary, Pheonix Copley and Zach Fucale.
Reminder that G Craig Anderson was signed today and placed on waivers with the expectation that he will join the taxi squad if he clears.

Connor McMichael will likely be added to the team’s taxi squad once he completes his required seven-day quarantine. One player currently on the taxi squad will need to be waived or re-assigned (6-player max) to make room for him. Look for Zach Fucale to be re-assigned to the South Carolina Stingrays until camp opens for the Hershey Bears.
The team has the day off today and will travel to Buffalo this afternoon in advance of their season opener against the Sabres on Thursday night.
#Caps will be off on Wednesday. Washington will hold 11:30 morning skate on Thursday at KeyBank Center in Buffalo with media availability to follow.

The #Caps have signed free agent goaltender Craig Anderson to a one-year contract for $700,000. He was placed on waivers moments ago, at noon on Wednesday. Should he clear waivers at noon on Thursday, he is expected to join the team’s taxi squad.
