Clay Stevenson, who played for the 100 Mile House Wranglers, was recalled by the Washington Capitals AHL affiliate, the Hershey Bears.

In his first professional season, the 23-year-old has posted a 5-2-2 record with the Stingrays this season over nine games. Stevenson earned his first shutout last Saturday, stopping 25 shots and earning first star honours in a 3-0 victory over Savannah. The native of Drayton Valley, Alberta is unbeaten in regulation in his previous five starts (3-0-2).

The 6-4, 195-pound goaltender was signed by the Capitals to a two-year, entry-level contract on Mar. 28 out of Dartmouth College. There, he had a record of 6-14-2, with two shutouts, a 2.70 goals-against average, and a .922 save percentage in his sophomore season at Dartmouth. He was named to the ECAC (Eastern College Athletic Conference) All-Rookie Team and the ECAC Third All-Star Team.

Stevenson played for the 100 Mile House Wranglers in 2016-17 and had 12 wins in 25 games with a .907 save percentage.
