Cameron Schilling(6) Washington Capitals

Washington Capitals‘ undrafted rookie defenseman Cameron Schilling(6) was recalled for his first NHL action.

He skated 11 shifts for a conservative 11:58 total ice time in the team’s 4-0 smack down.

In 54 AHL games with affiliate Hershey Bears, he has 6 goals and 8 assists with a +7 rating, playing in all types of game situations. He also appeared in 7 regular season (no points) and 4 Calder Cup Playoff games (2 goals) signed to an ato at the conclusion of his college playing career.

The 6’2″ 205 lbs. blue liner is signed through 2014 on a two-year entry level deal.

Although not selected, the 24-year old came as a highly touted defensive specialist with the potential to contribute points on the scoresheet.

It’s unlikely that he’ll spend much more than this season in the minors.
