Braden headed back to Hershey

Two pieces of news today...

1.  Braden Holtby was reassigned by the Washington Capitals today and will report to Hershey.  No word on whether he will play tonight or not but at the very least I would expect him to be in goal tomorrow evening.

2.  Garrett Mitchell was signed to an entry level contract with the Caps starting next season.  After his regular season finale tonight he will report to Hershey on an amateur tryout contract. 

Mitchell projects for more of a 3rd line player in the NHL but does bring some offensive punch to his game.  He has 18g and 32a in 69 WHL games this season.

Follow this link to read's take on Mitchell.  Definitely sounds promising!
