Capitals recall Schilling from Hershey

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.
