The Washington Capitals on Sunday placed defenseman Mike Green (lower body) on injured reserve and recalled defenseman Dmitry Orlov from the Hershey Bears of the American Hockey League.

Orlov, 22, is first among Hershey defensemen with eight points (two goals, six assists). He has 20 points (three goals, 17 assists) and 18 penalty minutes in 65 regular-season games with the Capitals.

Orlov was Washington's second-round selection (No. 55) in the 2009 NHL Draft.

Quote of the Day

I loved being in the jerseys again and they worked some magic for us. It was weird in warm-ups, seeing No. 22 in that jersey and thinking he’s [Mike Gartner], and No. 8 reminds you of Danny Briere … every number had me thinking back to the guys who wore them and smiling.
