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

I've got a lot of experience and there's a lot of young guys. It's even making me excited a little more. It's kind of a new life. At my age, I feel like I know a lot of things what to do, but I just cannot do it anymore. It's a lot easier to tell them what to do because they've still got the legs and hands to do it. I just know things, but I cannot do them anymore.
