BY foxsports • December 16, 2009

The Washington Capitals have recalled goaltender Michal Neuvirth from the Hershey Bears of the AHL.

The team announced the move on Wednesday, saying that goalie Semyon Varlamov is day-to-day with a lower-body injury.

Neuvirth (NOY-vihrt) has a 2-2-0 record in six career NHL games. He led Hershey to the Calder Cup title last year and was named the AHL's playoff MVP after going 16-6 with a 1.92 GAA.

This is his second recall of the season. He has played in one game for the Capitals this year, making 19 saves in a 3-2 home loss to Montreal on Nov. 20.
