Poor Joel Rechlicz – turns out he won’t get a chance to beat up Rene Bourque. The Capitals put the tough guy on waivers today, reports CSNWashington.com. If no NHL team picks him up, he’ll be back with the AHL’s Hershey Bears.
Yesterday Rechlicz said he was looking forward to Saturday’s game versus the Habs. As you’ll recall, Bourque – specifically the elbow part of Bourque – is the reason Caps leading scorer Nicklas Backstrom is out with a concussion.
