Brown has been traded to the Rangers in exchange for Ryan Bourque. The 25-year-old winger has just 20 games under his belt with AHL Hershey this season, tallying three goals and six assists over that period, but had an assist in each of his last four contests. He'll likely serve in a similar organizational depth role with the Rangers, but a the big-bodied forward could see some time with the Rangers if the club is in need of an added physical presence.
Brown was reassigned to AHL Hershey on Saturday. After clearing waivers, Brown was promptly sent down to the minors. The 24-year old played just one game for the Caps this season, recording a single shot on goal. Barring any future injuries, Brown will likely find himself in Hershey for a while due to Washington's forward depth.
Brown was placed on waivers on Friday, Isabelle Khurshudyan of The Washington Post reports. The 24-year-old center only played one game this season after missing the first few weeks of the season recovering from a hand injury sustained during training camp, recording one shot on goal in 7:41 of ice time. Unless claimed by another team, he will report to AHL Hershey where he had 17 goals and 28 points in 64 games last season.
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.
