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

It's such a privilege to be one of these 80 great players to do this milestone, and it doesn't get better than this doing it where I started. It means a lot to me. A big thanks goes to all the players tonight who helped me to achieve that and also all the players through my career.
