The Caps made a small trim to their roster on Friday morning, sending left wing Chris Bourque to Hershey of the AHL. The 21-year-old third-year pro skated in four preseason games with Washington this year, picking up an assist. He will likely play on one of the top two lines in Hershey and could see some point duty on the power play there, as well.
Bourque’s reassignment leaves Washington with 30 players on its training camp roster, including injured right wing Eric Fehr. The Caps must still trim at least half a dozen more players from their roster before Tuesday at 3 p.m. when opening night rosters must be filed with the league offices.
