Capitals claim Urbom on waivers

The Washington Capitals on Thursday claimed defenseman Alexander Urbom off waivers from the New Jersey Devils.

Urbom, 22, played one game for the Devils last season, and had eight assists in 68 games with the club's American Hockey League affiliate, the Albany Devils.

A 2009 third-round pick (No. 73), Urbom had two goals in 14 games with the Devils, spread across the past three seasons.

To make room on the roster, the Capitals sent center Michael Latta to Hershey of the American Hockey League.

Quote of the Day

He plays the way that we want to play and he's a leader on the ice. It's those components we feel were the dynamic of what we wanted in our captain.
