The Capitals continue to add players that will contribute both to the parent club and to the AHL affiliate Hershey Bears. The latest is Brian Willsie, whom the Caps signed to a one-year, two-way contract on Wednesday.
Willsie's name might sound familiar to die-hard fans, because this is not his first stop in Washington. Willsie played in the Capitals organization from 2003-06, scoring 29 NHL goals. He also played in the Colorado Avalanche organization last year, but he only played four games in the NHL, spending the majority of his time with their AHL affiliate, the Lake Eerie Monsters.
