Capitals' Beck Malenstyn: Sent to minors
The Capitals reassigned Malenstyn to AHL Hershey on Sunday.
Malenstyn was a call-up in mid-November, when a slew of injuries hit the Capitals forward group. With Carl Hagelin's (upper body) likely activation from injured reserve coming soon, and Nicklas Backstrom (upper body) nearing a return, Malenstyn's demotion was needed to clear space on the roster. The 21-year-old played three games with the big club and went pointless in that span.

Nic Dowd and Carl Hagelin are both expected to be sidelined long-term with upper-body injuries, so Malenstyn could be in for an extended stay with the big club. The 21-year-old winger has notched six points in 18 appearances with Hershey this season.
