After the Capitals’ second scrimmage on Sunday, head coach Peter Laviolette promised some cuts to the team’s training camp roster. After notifying players last night, those decisions were announced Monday morning.
The Washington Capitals cut six players and either loaned or re-assigned them to their junior or minor league hockey teams. Meanwhile, the Capitals called Axel Jonsson-Fjallby back from Sweden’s HockeyAllsvenskan and are assigning him to Hershey.
The cuts leave the Capitals with 34 players on their training camp roster which includes five goalies.
