Impact McMichael has appeared in six games with the Capitals this season, posting two shots on goal, three blocks and two hits. He has averaged just 8:52 of ice time. McMichael should see a dramatic increase in playing time in the minors. Demoting him to the AHL clears a potential roster spot for the activation of Dmitry Orlov (lower body) or T.J. Oshie (lower body) from injured reserve.
