The Capitals made another round of cuts Tuesday, dismissing six more players from training camp.
Forwards Samuel Henley, Luke Lockhart and Garrett Ross, along with defenseman James Oligny were returned to their junior teams.
Defenseman Tyler Ludwig and forward Taylor Stefishen, whose rights the Capitals traded a conditional seventh-round pick to Nashville for earlier in the offseason, were also cut.
According to the terms of that trade, via the team’s Mike Vogel, the Capitals have until June 1, 2012 to sign Stefishen to an NHL entry-level contract. Only if they come to terms with the winger would the team then send its seventh-round pick in 2013 to Nashville.
Hershey opens camp on Sunday, so expect more cuts as the week progresses.
