Viktor Fasth - Made the team as a backup and has played 2 games for Anaheim, going 2-0 with a .938 save percentage and a 1.44 goals against. If Jonas Hiller continues to have his struggles, we may see Fasth get more starts.

Zac Dalpe - Made the NHL team but with only 2 points on the season was demoted back to Charlotte to play yet again in the AHL. He seems on the cusp of developing that dreaded "career AHLer", label.

Jonathan Audy-Marchessault - Leading AHL scorer among players that belong in the AHL, JAM has been fantastic in Springfield and recently was recalled for limited minutes with Columbus. While he may not have a great NHL future, the sky remains the limit for his AHL production which is up quite a bit even from last season.

Michael Sgarbossa - Another AHL rookie who is doing work for Lake Erie. Recently got a call up for his first cup of NHL coffee after being undrafted.

Ryan Lasch - the hotly contested 25 year old after making Team USA for the WC has proven to be not worth all the attention and has headed back to Sweden after being demoted to the ECHL by the Ducks. Making the Capitals look quite the fool for the massive contract they gave him. However, it looks as if they'll only be responsible for it for one season.

Travis Oleksuk - Another hotly contested UDFA, Oleksuk has done just that in the AHL this season for the Sharks. With a meager 6 points and 2 goals in 29 games, it's not looking good for future success with him either. The Capitals 3 "big wins", with Lasch, Oleksuk, and Fasth may yield nothing usable for the franchise.
