Since being reassigned back to the Bears, Capitals forward Nathan Walker has found his way offensively. Coming into Saturday’s game against the Charlotte Checkers, the Aussie had tallied two goals and an assist in his last five games. Saturday, he continued his hot streak.

Less than a minute into the game, Walker took a pass in the slot from forward John Albert and fired the puck past Checkers goalie Alex Nedeljkovic into the back of the net.
Walker would also add a secondary assist on the first of two Riley Barber goals. Walker has posted eight points in his 14-game stint with Hershey, which includes a goal in the team’s recent outdoor game.

Nathan Walker started the season with the Caps, becoming the first Australian to play in an NHL game. On December 1, Walker was claimed off waivers by the Edmonton Oilers. December 20, Walker was re-claimed by the Caps and then sent down to Hershey.
The Bears, who came into Saturday’s game on a nine-game losing streak dating back to January 7, notched a 5-4 win in the shootout. Travis Boyd scored the game-winning goal in the fifth round of the skills competition.
