Capitals Reassign Andrew Gordon And Mathieu Perreault To Hershey

The Capitals start the season on Friday, and by that time they need to have a completed and finialized rosters. If tehre are any players who have survived all the cuts so far,  won't be skating with the big boys to kick off the regular season, will be cut this week.

On Tuesday, The Capitals made their most recent moves, from Mike Vogel.

#Caps have reassigned forwards Jay Beagle, Andrew Gordon and Mathieu Perreault to AHL Hershey. Gordon must clear waivers first.

It's a little surprising that Gordon and Perreault didn't make the final roster. They are both young players with potential that were expected to compete for the main roster. Particularly Perreault, who plays a position of need for the club, is only 22-years-old, and had nine points in only 21 games played last year. That's why the last cuts are always the hardest.

All three players will join the Hershey Bears, where they will continue to have an opportunity to impress the organization.
