  • Capitals' Brett Leason: Sent back to AHL

    Leason was reassigned to AHL Hershey after Saturday's Game 3 win over the Panthers.

    Leason played in Game 2 on Thursday, but he lost his place in the lineup to Connor McMichael on Saturday. The 23-year-old Leason could be an option to be recalled later in the playoffs if the Capitals need more forward depth.

  • Capitals' Brett Leason: Brought up from minors

    Leason was called up from AHL Hershey on Thursday.

    Leason's promotion doesn't bode well for the availability of Tom Wilson (lower body) for Thursday's matchup with Florida. Even with Leason being added to the squad, he's far from a lock to break into the lineup and could still find himself watching from the press box in favor of Connor McMichael or Axel Jonsson-Fjallby.

  • Capitals' Brett Leason: Reassigned to AHL Hershey

    Leason was shipped down to the minors Monday, Tom Gulitti of NHL.com reports.

    With the Caps adding Marcus Johansson and Johan Larsson (lower body) at the deadline, Leason finds himself the odd man out for a spot in the lineup. Still, Leason should be atop the list of potential call-ups throughout the remainder of the year should an injury or two pop up among the club's forwards.

  • Capitals' Brett Leason: Dropped to AHL affiliate

    Leason was reassigned to AHL Hershey on Thursday.

  • Capitals' Brett Leason: Added to taxi squad

    Leason was called up to Washington's taxi squad Monday.

    Leason has generated just one goal and two assists in his last 18 outings, so he shouldn't be expected to offer much in the way of offensive production if elevated to the full roster in the future. The Calgary native figures to remain a fringe roster player moving forward.
