Lewington registered four hits, a minus-1 rating and two blocked shots during Tuesday's 3-2 overtime loss to the Stars. Lewington got his first start of the season and logged 11:15 of ice time on the third pairing with Radko Gudas. The 25-year-old is likely headed back to the bench or the minors once Michal Kempny (hamstring) returns to the lineup and does not possess much fantasy relevance until he can carve out a more meaningful role.
Lewington was sent down to AHL Hershey on Monday. It appears Lewington's services aren't needed, even with Michal Kempny sidelined by a knee injury. Lewington hasn't suited up for a game at the top level since Dec. 29.
The Capitals recalled Lewington from AHL Hershey on Saturday, NBC Sports Washington reports. The Capitals have just six other healthy blueliners, so they needed to recall another for depth ahead of Sunday's game versus the Flyers. Lewington, who last played for the Caps on Dec. 29 versus the Senators, is that guy. It's unclear if he'll slot in Sunday, but fantasy owners shouldn't be keeping tabs since he has just two NHL games under his belt.
Lewington was reassigned to AHL Hershey on Monday. Lewington made an impact during his brief stint in the majors with a goal, an assist, a plus-3 rating and seven penalty minutes in two games. With Brooks Orpik (knee) nearing a return, the 24-year-old defender will look to continue his development in the minors, where he has two goals and six points in 26 games.
Lewington tallied a goal, and assist, five penalty minutes and a plus-2 rating during Saturday's 3-2 win over the Senators. Lewington is making the most of his recall with two points in his first two NHL games -- and a rare Gordie Howe hat trick. The 26-year-old should continue to log regular minutes as long as Brooks Orpik (knee) and Matt Niskanen (undisclosed) are out of the lineup, but with the former returning imminently and the latter not believed to be seriously ailing, it could be a short recall for the seventh-round pick from the 2013 NHL Entry Draft.
