Washington Capitals‘ 5th round pick in the 2010 draft (#142 overall) right wing Caleb Herbert(40) signed a two-year entry level deal, leaving University Of Minnesota-Duluth after leading the team in scoring and penalty minutes in his third season at the school.
His contract kicks in starting in 2014/2015 but no time has been wasted to get his legs wet as they send him to minor league affiliate Hershey Bears on an ato.
In his first game he connected for his first pro goal and assist.
For his encore he got the opening tally and his third contest he received two minutes for holding and no points. There’s goes that average.
In three AHL games the totals rest (for the moment) at 2 goals, 1 assist for 3 points and a +3 rating. All games were also important wins for the team.
The 6′ 194 lbs. 22-year old forward has been in the parent club’s training camps since his selection and will no doubt be fighting for a slot on the NHL roster out of his fifth camp to start his rookie season.
