Michael Latta has been on injured reserve with a lower-body injury for the Washington Capitals. Now he’s off to the minor leagues.
The Caps announced they’ve sent Latta to AHL Hershey. In 17 games, he had a goal and three assists as well as 12 penalty minutes. With just about everyone healthy in Washington, Latta needs to play games and he’ll do that in the AHL.
Latta, 22, was acquired in the Martin Erat-Filip Forsberg trade last season with the Nashville Predators. Erat has since asked for a trade while Forsberg is having his ups and downs to the minors in Nashville.
