Jerabek will make his Capitals debut on Tuesday.
Jerabek was acquired from the Canadiens and arrived with the Capitals with one goal and three assists (four points) in 25 games with Montreal. During his time in Laval (AHL), the 26-year-old had 11 points (1G / 10A) in 17 contests. There’s no word who Jerabek will replace or who he will skate with in his debut.
The Canadiens have traded Jerabek to the Capitals in exchange for a fifth-round pick in 2019.
Jerabek is expected to be a healthy scratch on Saturday.

The Canadiens have recalled Jakub Jerabek from Laval (AHL).
Jerabek is in his first year in North America after spending seven years in the Czech Republic and one in the KHL. The Czech blueliner’s call-up suggests that Shea Weber will not play again and that another defenseman may not be playing either. The 26-year-old has one goal and 10 assists (11 points) in 17 games with Laval.
