Capitals Acquire Scott Walker From Hurricanes

The Washington Capitals are officially active on deadline day, acquiring winger Scott Walker from the Carolina Hurricanes for a seventh round pick, according to TSN.

Walker is a gritty, tough forward who adds some toughness and some character to the Capitals lineup. The biggest need in DC is a defenseman, so they may not be done today, but Walker is a nice piece to add to the team. He's a solid locker room presence that should help out the Caps in the playoffs.
