The Washington Capitals, parent club of the AHL’s Hershey Bears, announced today that they have agreed to terms with left wing Kyle Greentree and defenseman Brian Fahey. Greentree inked a two-year agreement, while Fahey has signed for the 2010-11 season.
Greentree, 26, led the AHL’s Rockford IceHogs with 25 goals (25-20-45) in 64 games last season. His most prolific goal-scoring season as a professional came during the 2008-09 campaign, when he ranked second in the league with 39 goals (39-37-76) for the AHL’s Quad City Flames. Overall, Greentree shows 90 goals and 171 points in 223 career AHL games for Rockford, Quad City, and Philadelphia.
The 6’3”, 215-pound left wing has also played four games in the NHL, two with Philadelphia in 2007-08 and two with Calgary in 2008-09
Fahey, 29, played last season with Lake Erie (AHL), where he had 11 goals and 25 points in 71 games.
A blueliner for the Bears briefly during the 2003-04 season, he enjoyed his best season as a professional while skating for the AHL’s Chicago Wolves in 2007-08. Fahey scored 14 goals and assisted on 37 others that season for the Wolves during the regular season and helped Chicago win the Calder Cup title.
He was also a four-year standout for the University of Wisconsin, playing in 156 games during his time in Madison.
