The Capitals have recalled Brown from AHL Hershey. This is a depth move for the Capitals, a team that is generally healthy outside of a lower-body injury for Brooks Orpik.
Brown has been sent to AHL Hershey for a conditioning stint, Capitals PR reports. Brown dealt with a hand injury this past month and now he heads back to the minors to get back into game shape. The 24-year-old Texan plays a physical game -- he had 70 PIMs in 64 games for Hershey last season -- though he has yet to play for the Caps or their minor-league affiliate this season.
Chris Brown is out a "couple of weeks" with a hand injury, per Capitals head coach Barry Trotz, CSN Washington's Chuck Gormley reports.
Chris Brown signed a two-year, two-way deal with the Capitals on Thursday.
Chris Brown was reassigned to AHL Hershey on Saturday, Alex Prewitt of the Washington Post reports.
