ARLINGTON, Va. - The Washington Capitals have recalled goaltender Philipp Grubauer from Hershey of the AHL.

The 21-year-old Grubauer has a 6-4-1 record in his rookie season with Hershey.

Quote of the Day

It's not just going to happen on its own. We have to have guys commit to the areas we need to improve on. We're going to be better than last year but there is still a long way to go. But I really like the pieces and where we're headed.
