Royals receive three from Hershey

Reading, Pa. – The
Reading Royals, ECHL affiliate of the Washington Capitals of the National Hockey League and the Hershey Bears of the American Hockey League, today announced that forward Stanislav Galiev and defenseman Patrick Wey have been assigned by the Capitals from the Bears to the Royals while defenseman Michal Cajkovsky has been loaned by the Bears to the Royals.

Galiev, who is entering his second season as a pro, was an integral member of the Royals’ 2013 Kelly Cup championship team. In three different stints with the Royals, he scored 23 goals and assisted on 24 others in 46 regular-season games. He also played 17 games with Hershey, notching one assist. Galiev played 10 playoff games with the Royals in the team’s run to the ECHL championship, recording 11 points (4g-7a). Last season marked the third consecutive year, and fourth time since beginning major junior in 2008-09, that Galiev has been a part of a championship team. His Saint John Sea Dogs won back-to-back titles in the QMJHL in 2011 and 2012, and won the Memorial Cup in 2011.

Wey also has a couple of championships under his belt. He was twice (2010 and 2012) a member of the NCAA Division I National Champions during his four year stint at Boston College. Wey recorded 33 points (4g-29a) and 147 penalty minutes in 133 career games with the Eagles. In the second of those two championship runs, he was named as a member of the All-Tournament team in NCAA Northeast Regional. Last year, in his senior season, Wey was selected as the Best Defensive Defenseman in Hockey East and was chosen as a Second Team Hockey East All-Star. A fourth-round selection (115th overall) by the Capitals in the 2009 NHL Entry Draft, Wey attended Prospects Camp, Rookie Camp and Training Camp with Washington this past off-season.

Cajkovsky is entering his first year as a pro. Last season, he was second amongst defensemen on the Ottawa 67s of the Ontario Hockey League with 10 goals and 24 assists in 66 games. Cajkovsky, who was selected as the runner-up for having the hardest shot in the OHL Eastern Conference by coaches in that conference last year, compiled 291 penalty minutes in 192 career OHL games. This past off-season, Cajkovsky attended NHL Prospects Camp, Rookie Camp and Training Camp with the Washington Capitals.
