Capitals Recall Copley, Carlson Re-Assigned to Bears

March 21, 2018

The Hershey Bears have announced a pair of transactions. The Washington Capitals have recalled goaltender Pheonix Copley from Hershey. The announcement was made by Washington's senior vice president and general manager Brian MacLellan. Additionally, goaltender Adam Carlson has been re-assigned to the Bears from the Kansas City Mavericks of the ECHL. 

Copley, 26, has appeared in 38 games this season with Hershey, collecting a 14-16-6 record with a 2.86 goals against average and a .898 save percentage. The native of North Pole, Alaska has played in 142 AHL games with Hershey and Chicago, going 72-47-15 with a 2.53 goals against average, .914 save percentage, and nine shutouts. Copley has played in two career NHL games with St. Louis, making his NHL debut on Feb. 27, 2016 in relief at Nashville. He made his lone NHL start, a 5-2 loss at Winnipeg, on Jan. 27, 2017.  

Carlson, 24, appeared in four games earlier this season with Hershey, going 2-2-0 with a 3.03 goals against average and a .903 save percentage. He earned his first AHL win on Oct. 21 in a 4-2 victory at Grand Rapids. Carlson returns to Hershey from Kansas City where he had posted a 5-1-2-1 record in nine games with a 2.07 goals against average, a .922 save percentage, and one shutout. The Edina, Minn. native is 6-3-3-1 in 16 ECHL games this season with South Carolina, Indy, and Kansas City.
