Latta made his NHL debut on opening night against the Chicago Blackhawks and has played in two games for the Capitals this season. He has two goals and four points in six games with Hershey.
Orlov is looking to make his season debut with the Capitals. He had three goals and 19 points in 60 games during the 2011-12 season. He had one assist in five games with the Capitals last season. Orlov has one goal and six points in six games with Hershey this season.
To make room on their roster, the Capitals also placed defenseman John Erskine (upper-body injury) on long-term injured reserve retroactive to Oct. 26.
[Stamkos] is a great teammate and a great leader, that's why he's got the 'C'. He brings that tremendous work ethic to the rink and he's one of the top players in the game. I know if I put the passes where they are supposed to be, there's a very good chance he's going to put it in the back of the net.
