The Washington Capitals lost a good player on Friday afternoon after being placed on waivers. What stings the most is he is heading to their biggest rivals.

Penguins Claim Matthew Phillips From The Capitals



According to insider Chris Johnston, the Pittsburgh Penguins have officially acquired promising young forward Matthew Phillips from the Washington Capitals.

Pittsburgh claims Matthew Phillips off waivers from Washington.




Phillips was placed on waivers on Thursday to make room for Sonny Milano's return from an upper-body injury that kept him out for over two months.


Standing at 5-foot-8, Phillips signed a one-year contract with the Capitals in July and earned a roster spot after an impressive preseason. However, his playing time was limited, leading to inconsistency, and he often found himself as a healthy scratch.


During his time with the Capitals, Phillips recorded one goal and four assists in 27 games.

Stay tuned for more updates.
