Washington reassigned Cody Eakin to the AHL’s Hershey Bears on Monday. The rookie forward was recalled late Friday night and appeared in just one game, against the Columbus Blue Jackets, during this brief stint with the team.

Eakin, 20, played 9 minutes and 43 seconds in the Capitals’ 4-2 win in Columbus and finished with no points and no shots on goal.

In 19 NHL games this season, Eakin has three goals and six points and carries a plus-2 rating.
