Capitals recall winger Brian Willsie

The Capitals have recalled veteran winger Brian Willsie from the AHL's Hershey Bears, the team announced today.

Willsie, 32, signed on for his second stint with Washington over the summer; he had 19 goals and 22 assists in 82 games with the Caps in 2005-06 before splitting the last four years between the Kings and Avalanche organizations.

Also, as Tarik El-Bashir noted back in July, Willsie was Alex Ovechkin's first road roommate.

Willsie has 12 goals, 21 assists and is +17 in 36 games this season with the Bears.
