The Washington Capitals recalled defenseman Chris Felix from the Baltimore Skipjacks yesterday, and he joined the National Hockey League team in St. Louis for its game against the Blues last night.
Felix, who had four goals and 24 assists in 27 games with the Skipjacks, is a power-play specialist. He was called up by the Capitals to replace Mikhail Tatarinov, who suffered a knee injury in Wednesday night's game against the Chicago Blackhawks. This is Felix's third stint with Washington this season.
Center Rob Murray finished his two-week reconditioning assignment with the Skipjacks yesterday. Murray must be recalled by the Capitals or go through waivers. He had four assists in seven American Hockey League games.
