Former UND defenseman Chay Genoway is off to a new organization.
The Minnesota Wild traded Genoway to the Washington Capitals in exchange for a seventh-round draft pick.
Genoway will report to the Hershey Bears of the American Hockey League, Washington’s top minor league club.
The move may give Genoway more of a shot at reaching the NHL, as he was buried on the depth chart for the Minnesota Wild, who recently signed a veteran defenseman and will welcome first-round pick Matt Dumba to the organization next year.
Genoway was the second-leading defenseman scorer for the Houston Aeros, Minnesota’s top minor-league club. He had four goals and 19 points in 53 games.
Genoway did play one NHL game with the Wild last season.
