The Washington Capitals have brought up goaltender Clay Stevenson from their AHL affiliate Hershey, following Charlie Lindgren’s early exit from Monday morning’s practice due to an undisclosed injury. Lindgren is currently listed as day-to-day, and Stevenson is expected to serve as backup to Darcy Kuemper when the Capitals face the Calgary Flames in their second game of the season.

Lindgren started the Capitals’ season opener last Friday, making 31 saves but allowing four goals in a 4-0 loss to rival Pittsburgh. Over his career, spanning eight seasons with the Montreal Canadiens (2015-20), St. Louis Blues (2021-22), and the Capitals, he holds a record of 28-24-5 with a .906 save percentage and a 2.91 goals-against average.

Stevenson, a 24-year-old, joined Washington as an undrafted player out of Dartmouth in 2022 and has yet to make his NHL debut.

In a corresponding move, the Capitals have placed defenseman Joel Edmundson on long-term injured reserve (LTIR). Edmundson, who underwent hand surgery in late September, was already on injured reserve and will now need to miss a minimum of 10 games to start the season.
