The Washington Capitals have recalled defenseman Cameron Schilling from the Hershey Bears of the American Hockey League.
Schilling, 24, has recorded 14 points (six goals, eight assists) and is a plus-7 in 54 games with Hershey in his first full professional season. He currently leads active Hershey defensemen in goals and plus/minus and ranks tied for second in points.
The Carmel, Ind., native played in 144 collegiate games during his four-year career with Miami University, collecting 57 points (eight goals, 49 assists) and 155 penalty minutes. The 6-foot-2, 197-pound blueliner was a member of two NCAA All-Regional Teams (2008-2010) and helped Miami win the 2010-11 CCHA championship.
Schilling was originally signed by Washington as an undrafted free agent on March 27, 2012.
