After winning the 2012 NCAA Hockey Championship as an alternate captain with Boston College Eagles, undrafted forward Barry Almeida(23) signed an ato to join Hershey Bears for the remainder of the regular season and quite possibly their Calder Cup Playoffs‘ run.
In his first game, the last of the 2011/2012 AHL regular season, with his new team on his first shift, he scored his first pro goal on his first shot. He should have probably played the lottery on Sunday too.
The 23-year old is another small player entry at only 5’8″ 175 lbs. but looks to have the ability to adapt. Could hurt for the Caps to continue the look with an invite to rookie camp this summer.
