Lewington was placed on waivers Sunday, Stephen Whyno of the Associated Press reports.

Lewington had not drawn into the lineup since Oct. 16 and was a luxury the Capitals could not afford with Carl Hagelin (upper body) and Richard Panik (upper body) getting close to returning to action. The 24-year-old has no points, a minus-2 rating and 17 PIM in five NHL games this year.
