Neuvirth Called Up to Hershey

Four days after being sent to South Carolina of the ECHL, goaltending prospect Michal Neuvirth is back in Hershey. But he's not expected to play and his stay probably won't last long, I'm told. The plan is still for the Caps to loan him out to another team.

I'm guessing this confirms that JT is a placeholder until our talent comes up through the farm. Which means even less reason to stress out over him. JT isn't great, but I think he'll do well enough as a placeholder until one of our farm goalies is ready.

Loan him to Malkin, so that he can read him bedtime stories, and ice down his bumps and bruises after he gets steamrolled by Ovie and doesn't know why.

Hi Tariq, it seems that on the discussion boards, Fedorov is an early season favorite to win the Lady Byng trophy for "sportsmanship while playing at a high level". He still has 0 PIMs and is going to rack up some points this year. Any chance you could ask Sergei his feelings on winning another award, and whether or not he is playing smarter this year, therefore taking less penalties? Best regards,

Adam Masterson

I was at the Bears home opener this weekend and it looked like Varlamov got hurt in warm-ups.

It looked to me he took a hard shot wrong.

"There is struggle for the young goalie on the ice. He has won his first two starts in a Bears’ sweater, but he is learning virtually a new position in his pads given how active the goalies are in North American pro hockey. The biggest adjustment for him thus far is with the lateral movement required of goalies here, something not commonly asked of goalies in Europe on the larger ice sheets. Simeon’s hamstrings and groin are sore from all the lateral skating, and on Saturday morning he suffered a recurrence of a recent leg injury that he believes will prevent him from making his scheduled Sunday start against Wilkes Barre-Scranton and could shelve him for a couple of weeks. He also has a lot to learn about handling the puck."

I thought that once a goalie dresses for an AHL team, and then loaned out to another AHL team, that player can no longer play for the team (for that season) that loaned him. Which means he would be done in Hershey for the year.
