How to create a breakout candidate in the AHL – By Scott Cullen
The Washington Capitals have had a busy couple of weeks.
In addition to the team’s return from injury, they announced the signing of Scott Cullen, who has played in both the NHL and AHL this season.
Cullen, 30, played a role in the Capitals’ comeback win over the San Jose Sharks on Sunday, which was his third NHL start.
His second goal came off a rebound of a shot by Braden Holtby.
The Washington Times notes Cullen has played for seven teams since being drafted by the Capitals in 2007.
He’s played for six teams in the NHL, one in the American Hockey League and one in AHL.
He also played for the Vancouver Canucks, Edmonton Oilers and Carolina Hurricanes.
Cullen is expected to fill the hole left by Scott Wilson, who signed a one-year, two-way contract with the Capitals last week.
