Capitals recall forward Chris Brown, 2 days after acquiring him in trade

ARLINGTON, Va. - The Washington Capitals have recalled forward Chris Brown from Hershey of the AHL, two days after they acquired him in a trade with the Phoenix Coyotes.

The Capitals also re-assigned goaltender Philipp Grubauer to Hershey on Thursday.

Grubauer was recalled Wednesday after backup goalie Michal Neuvirth was shipped to the Buffalo Sabres for Jaroslav Halak. Grubauer played in relief in Wednesday night's 6-4 loss to the Philadelphia Flyers.

The 23-year-old Brown played in six games with the Coyotes this season.

Quote of the Day

They said, 'You're going to love the city. It's smaller than Philadelphia, but you're going to love it. You're going to love the fans. Just watching the playoffs last year, the fans seemed louder there than they did anywhere. I'm really excited about that.

— Forward Scott Hartnell on his upcoming season with the Columbus Blue Jackets
