The Little Things

from Tarik El-Bashir at his Capitals Insider blog,

Tonight’s game against the Tampa Bay Lightning will be No. 10 in the NHL this season for Lawrence Nycholat.
That’s a big deal for the 27-year-old defenseman, who has spent most of his career toiling away in the minor leagues.
It means he is now subject to waivers. Under the terms of the collective bargaining agreement, another team could claim Nycholat if the Capitals were to send him back to Hershey this season. Considering the way he’s played the past nine games, he almost definitely would get scooped up.
After failing to make the team out of training camp the past two seasons, the Calgary-native had become afterthought within the organization - until the Capitals suffered injuries to three defensemen in late December.

more... sometimes little things like this go unnoticed, I just wanted to point it out…
