Per John Walton, the Caps have re-assigned Cody Eakin, Mattias Sjogren and Dmitry Orlov to Hershey.

With this last round of roster-trimming, the Caps are left with what would appear to be their opening night roster (barring any further changes, of course, and with one spot on the blueline still somewhat unclear*). Ladies and gentlemen, your 2011-12 Washington Capitals (with our take on their depth chart here):

Forwards (14) - Alex Ovechkin, Nicklas Backstrom, Alexander Semin, Marcus Johansson, Troy Brouwer, Mike Knuble, Brooks Laich, Joel Ward, Jason Chimera, Jeff Halpern, Matt Hendricks, Jay Beagle, Mathieu Perreault, D.J. King

Defensemen (7) - Mike Green, John Carlson, Karl Alzner, Roman Hamrlik, Jeff Schultz, Dennis Wideman, John Erskine

Goalies (2) - Tomas Vokoun, Michal Neuvirth

* Tom Poti is also on the roster, but headed for Long-Term Injured Reserve (LTIR); Erskine may not be ready to start the season, which may necessitate the recall of a seventh defenseman.
