    Capitals' Chris Brown: Reassigned to AHL Hershey

    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.

Unless claimed by another team, he will report to AHL Hershey where he had 17 goals and 28 points in 64 games last season.

    Capitals' Chris Brown: Sent to AHL on conditioning assignment

    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.

  • Out a couple of weeks with injured hand

    News: Chris Brown is out a "couple of weeks" with a hand injury, per Capitals head coach Barry Trotz, CSN Washington's Chuck Gormley reports.
    Analysis: Specifics about the injury are unclear at this point. Chris Brown signed a two-year, two-way contract with the Capitals in mid-July. That type of deal will allow him to shuttle between the organizational ranks, with the potential to be a call-up option for the parent club once he gets healthy again. He made his way into five games last season, having notched one point in five games.

    Analysis: Chris Brown has served as a fringe-level NHL player for a couple years now, so it makes sense that Washington will want him on a two-way contract and be able to move him between levels. He should serve as depth for the Capitals and make at least occasional appearances in the NHL.
  • Capitals Reassign Brown

    News: Chris Brown was reassigned to AHL Hershey on Saturday, Alex Prewitt of the Washington Post reports.
    Analysis: Chris Brown was set to serve as a healthy scratch for Saturday's game against the Sabres, so rather than letting him rot in the press box, the team elected to send him to the minors to pick up some playing time. There's a chance the team could bring him back to the NHL squad after the weekend, but likely only if Liam O'Brien (lower body) and Brooks Laich (shoulder) are deemed unavailable for the Capitals' next game Wednesday.
