Fleischmann To Be Demoted
Prospect Tomas Fleischmann is expected to be returned to Hershey (AHL) today, ending his second stint in Washington after six games.
The move is needed to make room for veteran Richard Zednik, who is likely to be activated from injured reserve in time for tonight's game against the visiting Carolina Hurricanes.
Fleischmann had one assist in limited ice time. The biggest problem with Flash (that's his nickname) is he's an inexperienced scoring line winger on a team that has enough NHL proven scoring line wingers.
Zednik, meantime, had just begun to emerge from a scoring slump when he suffered an injured left wrist on Nov. 3. He missed six games.
Also, it appears Kris Beech and/or Brooks Laich will get back into the lineup tonight.
