Caps Sign Pair For Da Bears

The Caps have made it official and signed center Kyle Wilson and defenseman Jame Pollock to add a little depth to the Hershey Bears' roster.

Per the AP story:
Pollock, 28, has spent the past three seasons in Europe, where he led the Sunipret Ice Tigers of the German Elite League with 22 goals and 32 assists in 46 games in 2006-07. He tied the league record for goals by a defenceman.

He played nine games for the St. Louis Blues in 2003-04.

Wilson recently finished his first season with the Capitals' American Hockey League affiliate, the Hershey Bears, where he was the team's rookie of the year. He scored 24 goals and 54 points in 54 games.
While I'm a bit perplexed by the first name "Jame" (what, did the "s" not make it through Customs?), I just realized that the Caps now have four blueliners in the organization whose surnames start with "Po" (Tom Poti, Brian Pothier and Sasha Pokulok being the others). That's gotta be a record.
