Capitals send Grubauer, Wellman to Hershey

One day after making his NHL debut, the Washington Capitals on Thursday sent goaltender Philipp Grubauer back to Hershey of the American Hockey League.

Grubauer, called up early Wednesday to play in place of an ill Michal Neuvirth, replaced Braden Holtby in the second period of Wednesday's 4-1 loss to the Philadelphia Flyers, stopping all 14 shots he faced.

The Capitals also sent forward Casey Wellman to Hershey.

Quote of the Day

He is, in my opinion, one of the best defensemen in the NHL and continuing to grow. I think his game, from an offensive standpoint, he continues to drive our offense... I think there's still tremendous upside for Oliver.

— Coyotes GM Don Maloney on defenseman Oliver Ekman-Larsson
