The Washington Capitals have recalled defenseman Dmitry Orlov from the Hershey Bears (AHL).

Orlov, 22, registered two points (one goal, one assist) against the Norfolk Admirals (AHL) last night. He leads the Bears with eight points (two goals, six assists) this season. Orlov tallied an AHL career-high four points (one goal, three assists) on Oct. 19 in the Bears’ 4-0 win over the St. John’s IceCaps.

But he was one of the final cuts, which is not surprising given what everyone around the Caps had to say about him Sunday and Monday. Coach Bruce Boudreau called Orlov's final exhibition game “mediocre” while general manager George McPhee, in an interview with The Washington Times, wondered if the young Russian needed more seasoning.

At this point the team has six healthy veteran defenders with two starting the year on IR. Last season, the Russian expatriate scored two goals and nine points in 19 games with the Bears. He should find a place in the lineup by next season.
