Nathan Walker finally returned to Hershey.

After being waived by the Caps with the intention of sending him to Hershey, Walker instead landed in Edmonton. He played two games there before being reclaimed by the Caps, who then sent him back to Hershey. This time, there was no walkabout. When he returned to the Bears on Friday night in Springfield, he had an assist.  On Saturday, the sold out crowd at Giant Center welcomed him back with a loud applause after being named to the starting lineup.

Both teams had a jump in their step, trading big hits in the first period.  Nothing broke through until the second period when Zach Aston-Reese scored for Wilkes-Barre. Hershey would answer in the third with a goal from Tyler Graovac.

In overtime, Dominik Simon of Wilkes-Barre, would slipped through the defense and snipe one past Vitek Vanecek to end the game.
