by Staff Writer / Washington Capitals
ARLINGTON, Va. – The Washington Capitals have recalled left wing Quintin Laing from the Hershey Bears of the American Hockey League (AHL), vice president and general manager George McPhee announced today. Laing will join the Capitals in Carolina and will be poised to make his Capitals debut wearing No. 53 in tonight’s game at RBC Center (7 p.m., Comcast SportsNet, Talk Radio 3WT – 107.7 FM, 1500 AM, 820 AM).


Laing, 28, made his NHL debut in 2003-04 with the Chicago Blackhawks, recording one assist in three games. A 6’2”, 200-pound native of Rosetown, Saskatchewan, he has seven points (two goals, five assists) in 19 games for Hershey this season and leads all Bears forwards with a +8 rating.

Laing was the Detroit Red Wings’ fourth-round choice, 102nd overall, in the 1997 NHL Entry Draft. An eighth-year pro, he is in his second season in the Capitals’ organization. Laing was named Hershey’s Unsung Hero last season, when he recorded 43 points (15 goals, 28 assists) in 75 games for the Bears. He has posted 179 points in 452 career games at the AHL level.
