Almost exactly one year ago the Capitals signed Maximilian Kammerer to a two-way, three-year contract. On Tuesday, the Athletic’s Chris Kuc reported that the Capitals have placed Kammerer on unconditional waivers, meaning his contract with the Capitals’ organization can be terminated.
The undrafted German forward played with the Capitals’ AHL affiliate the Hershey Bears for the 2018-19 season. He registered only four goals and nine assists over the course of 33 games, missing a significant amount of games due to injury and healthy scratches, and was not called up to the Capitals during the regular season of playoffs.
Before being signed by the Capitals, Kammerer was the 2016-17 rookie of the year for the German league, Deutsche Eishockey Liga. In 2017-18 he was the second leading scorer for his former team, Düsseldorfer EG.
