Roster Trim

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.

    I’m pulling for Bourque to have a big year in Hershey, and come strong into camp into 2008 and make a big splash, Thanks for all the good work with the Caps, Mike.

    I figured as much. Good to get it out of the way heading into the last few tilts. That should put a fire under the remaining guys.
    I’m interested in seeing what develops here. By the looks of it, Flash has earned a spot, as has Green. Monday and Tuesday will be very interesting.

    Poor Bourquey:

    He not only gets cut, but also suffers the indignity of Vogs referring to the 5’9″ skater as a “small” trim.
    Just jaggin’ you Vogs.
