Carey was recalled from AHL Hershey on Friday, Isabelle Khurshudyan of The Washington Post reports. Yeah, averaging a point per game in the minors -- as has been the case for Carey -- will get you some looks from the big club. However, he's failed to garner a substantial role in the NHL since the Avalanche originally called his name in the fifth round of the 2007 draft.
Carey was reassigned to AHL Hershey on Tuesday. The former Boston College Eagle went scoreless in the one game he suited up for since being recalled March 1, his fourth contest in the NHL this season. Carey has been a near point-per-game player in the minors this season, tallying 44 through 48 games, and he could be recalled later in the regular season or postseason to provide depth for the Caps.
Carey was recalled from AHL Hershey on Wednesday. Carey will trade places with Riley Barber on the organizational depth chart as the Capitals tinker with their roster on the day of the trade deadline. The winger has been a beast with the AHL's Bears this season, picking up 16 goals to complement 28 helpers and a plus-11 rating through 48 games.
Carey has been re-assigned to AHL Hershey as of Tuesday afternoon. The 28-year-old forward was recently recalled to fill the void left by the injured T.J. Oshie (upper body), but did not play during his brief stint in DC. He will look to build on his 25 points in 28 games for AHL Hershey as he awaits his next chance to crack the NHL roster.
Carey was recalled from AHL Hershey on Monday. Carey was likely brought up due to questions regarding the availability of T.J. Oshie (upper body) and Tom Wilson (lower body) for Monday's matchup with Montreal. So far this season, Carey has appeared in three contests in which he averaged 10:23 of ice time and registered three hits, one blocked shot, and a minus-2 rating. The winger has been significantly more productive in the minors where he is fourth on the team in points with 10 goals and 15 helpers. If he does crack the lineup, look for the 28-year-old to slot into a bottom-six role.
