With Mike Green questionable for Friday’s game at the Detroit Red Wings, the Capitals have recalled veteran Tyson Strachan from the AHL’s Hershey Bears.
Strachan, 29, has four assists and a plus-3 rating in 11 games with the Bears this season and will meet the Capitals in Detroit. George Richards, the Florida Panthers’ beat writer for the Miami Herald, ran into Strachan at the Charlotte airport and tweeted where the defenseman was headed.
The Capitals signed Strachan to a one-year, two-way contract worth $550,000 at the NHL level this summer. Strachan has played in 120 NHL games over the past five seasons and was a regular for the Panthers last year, appearing in 38 games in the lockout-shortened campaign.
