Capitals prospect Joe Snively

The Washington Capitals are promoting Joe Snively, bringing the Virginia native up to the taxi squad from the AHL’s Hershey Bears. Meanwhile, they re-assigned Mike Sgarbossa from the taxi squad back to Hershey.

Snively has been outstanding for the Bears this season with 15 goals and 38 points in 35 games. He’s currently on a three-game point streak, with six points over that span.

The 25-year-old used to lace ’em up with the Little Caps and came to D.C. as a free agent after his time at Yale. He made his NHL debut on Dec. 19 against the Los Angeles Kings, picking up an assist in his first game up with the big club.

In 10 games with the Capitals this season, the 29-year-old has two goals and two assists. Prior to coming up for Hershey, he had eight goals and 14 points in 15 games.
