In the four practice days since he was knocked out by Pittsburgh’s Arron Asham, there has been no sign of Capitals’ winger Jay Beagle.
The Calgary native hasn’t skated since he absorbed a punch to the head, fell and was helped off the ice by teammates Consol Energy Center on Oct. 13. Beagle hasn’t been made available to media and when asked about the 26-year-old’s status on Tuesday, Coach Bruce Boudreau had little to add.
He’s “smiling in the dressing room,” Boudreau said of Beagle. But when asked if he knew when the winger would be back on the ice, the coach said “Nope.”
Boudreau didn’t offer any new report on goaltender Michal Neuvirth, who did not skate at all Tuesday after aborting his time on the ice Monday after only 20 minutes. Neuvirth suffered a bruised right foot when he took a shot prior to the Capitals game against the Lightning on Oct. 10.
