As first reported by Isabelle Khurshudyan of the Washington Post, forward Nathan Walker will be placed on waivers with the intent to send him to the Hershey Bears if he is not claimed by another team.
Walker, 23, has played in only seven games for Washington this season and skated only 64 minutes all season.
Nathan Walker is going on waivers. Caps plan to send him down to Hershey if he clears.

The five-year pro has only one goal coming in his first game with the Caps, and has only played in three games since the start of November, none since November 16th.
Hershey, who had defenseman Aaron Ness return on Wednesday, will also have forwards John Albert and Garrett Mitchell return to the lineup this weekend. Walker could join them on Friday as the Bears take on Lehigh Valley in Allentown to start a three-in-three.
