Capitals Recall Center Mattias Sjogren

The Washington Capitals announced on Tuesday that they have recalled center Mattias Sjogren of Farjestad of the Swedish Elite League. The Capitals loaned Sjogren to Farjestad on Nov. 30 where he played 28 games and recorded nine points. In 19 games with the Hershey Bears this season, Sjogren tallied five points.

It's interesting that the Capitals would recall Sjogren as Capitals general manager George McPhee accused Sjogren of quitting on the team back in November.

When we signed him we told him we had a job available and promised him we'd give him a look this year. His training camp wasn't good enough to keep him at the start of the year. He was developing OK, but I guess they got impatient and decided to go home. If you're going to quit on us you might as well go

The Capitals plan to use Sjogren right now as an extra body for practice. Sjogren will most likely not see any ice time during the Stanley Cup Playoffs unless injuries force the issue.
