The Kris Beech (non-pool) experiment ended in Vancouver as Beech was claimed off of waivers by the Capitals on Wednesday. Beech was on his way down to the minors if he cleared waivers this morning, but the Caps thought they would have a chance with the 27 year-old centre.
Beech had 2 points (1G, 1A) in 4 games for Vancouver and has 11 points (6G, 5A) in 20 games all season. Somehow, he's just not fitting in to a coach's plans this season.
The Salmon Arm, BC native will return to his original draft team, where he was picked 7th overall in 1999.
