Caps sign Greentree, Fahey

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.
