Capitals call up Holtby
Updated: January 27, 2010, 2:36 PM ETAssociated Press
The move was made because two of the Capitals top goaltenders are hurt.
Semyon Varlamov has been sidelined since early December with knee and groin injuries.
The injuries leave Michal Neuvirth, who began the season in the minors, as the current starter for the top team in the Eastern Conference.
To make room for Holtby, the Capitals assigned defenseman Karl Alzner to Hershey.
