Caps recall Braden Holtby from Hershey

Braden Holtby has been recalled from Hershey and the goaltending prospect has joined the team in Chicago ahead of tonight’s game against the Blackhawks.

The Caps have not given a reason for the move, but they’re facing back-to-back games on the road and Tomas Vokoun acknowledged before starting in Winnipeg on Friday that he’s been battling a nagging injury.

Washington plays in Detroit on Monday.

Holtby, 22, is 20-15-2 with a 2.61 goals against average and a .906 save percentage with the Bears this season.

I’ll have more from United Center later this morning.
