Washington Capitals “Black Aces”

On April 29, 2012, in News, by Kyle Mace

With the Hershey Bears season coming to a close, most Bears fans will be putting all of their focus on the NHL playoffs. One of those teams left in the NHL playoffs are the Washington Capitals, the Bears affiliate. Monday night the Capitals will face off against the New York Rangers in game two of their series, but you could see some recalls before that. Those recalls are called “Black Aces,” named after holding the “Dead Man’s Hand” (two black aces) in a game of poker. So who could some of those “Black Aces” be?

This is the list of players on Capitals contracts, the players who have been on the Capitals roster for at least one game this season are in bold.

  • Patrick McNeill (inj.)
  • Kevin Marshall
  • Cameron Schilling
  • Sean Collins
  • Cody Eakin
  • D.J. King
  • Chris Bourque
  • Jacob Micflikier
  • Joel Rechlicz
  • Christian Hanson (inj.)
  • Ryan Potulny
  • Zach Miskovic
  • Mike Carman
  • Tomas Kundratek (inj.)
  • Dany Sabourin
  • Garrett Mitchell
  • Kyle Greentree

This does not mean all of these guys will be called up, but expect many to get the call.

The Caps and Rags face off Monday at 7:30pm.
