Capitals Recall Andre Burakovsky from Hershey

ARLINGTON, Va. – The Washington Capitals have recalled center Andre Burakovsky from the Hershey Bears of the American Hockey League (AHL), senior vice president and general manager Brian MacLellan announced today.

Burakovsky, 20, has played in 50 games with Washington this season, registering 22 points (nine goals, 13 assists) and 12 penalty minutes. The Malmo, Sweden, native made his NHL debut on Oct. 9 against Montreal and scored his first NHL goal in the first period. Burakovsky became the 13th player in Capitals history to score his first NHL goal in his first NHL game and is one of just seven players in franchise history to score a goal in his NHL debut and season opener.

Burakovsky has registered seven points (three goals, four assists) in 13 games with Hershey this season. He made his AHL debut on Dec. 19 at Lehigh Valley and earned six points in his last eight games (3/20-4/4: 3g, 3a). The 6’3”, 198-pound center registered 87 points (41g, 46a) in 57 games with the Erie Otters (OHL) in 2013-14. He was named the OHL Player of the Month for March after tallying 24 points (12 goals, 10 assists) in 12 games during the month and recorded a league-high plus-22 rating. Burakovsky led Erie to the best regular-season record in franchise history (52-14-2-0, 106 points) and finished the season ranked ninth in the OHL in goals (41), tied for sixth in power-play goals (15), third in game-winning goals (10) and tied for eighth in plus/minus (+46).
