The Washington Capitals, the NHL affiliate of the Hershey Bears, announced today that forward Aliaksei Protas has been recalled from the Bears. The announcement was made by Washington's senior vice president and general manager Brian MacLellan. 

Protas, 22, has skated in 41 games with the Capitals this season, posting 10 points (3g, 7a). The 6'6", 225-pound forward has played in 74 career games with Washington over the past two seasons, notching 19 points (6g, 13a). 

With the Bears this season, Protas appeared in five games, striking for three assists. The native of Vitebsk, Belarus played in 42 games with the Bears in 2021-22, finishing with 24 points (8g, 16a), and earning Hershey's Rookie of the Year award.
