The Washington Capitals returned left wing Steve Maltais to the Baltimore Skipjacks yesterday.
Maltais, last week's Player of the Week in the American Hockey )) League, will be in the lineup tonight when the Skipjacks (3-1) meet the Maine Mariners (3-1) in an AHL game at the Baltimore Arena.
Maltais was called up by the Capitals on Sunday, and played against the Montreal Canadiens on Monday night.
Skipjacks left wing Bob Joyce still is bothered by an injured ankle. Coach Rob Laird said everyone else is healthy.
