Washington must whittle down the roster to no more than 23.

With training camp at the halfway point, Washington plans to make roster cuts on Sunday.

Wilson has never been suspended by the league before.

“He’s had two pretty good games,” Coach Barry Trotz said of the versatile 6-foot-5 forward.

Ovechkin has worked with the program for four years.

'Even though he's up there in the years, he's still a very, very good athlete,' Eller said of the former NFL receiver.

As the league cracks down on slashing, Ovechkin found himself in the penalty box twice on Wednesday night.

Teammates got a kick out of Jonas Siegenthaler's goof in Montreal.

"We keep putting him with top players, because we think he's going to be a top player,” Coach Barry Trotz said.

The Thanksgiving accessory requires the purchase of a special ticket.

Brett Connolly, while trying to solidify himself as an NHL regular, could also be a top-six forward for the Capitals this season.

Bought out by the New Jersey Devils after a disappointing, injury-marred campaign, the forward is out to prove he still belongs in the NHL.

Ovechkin will be alongside center Evgeny Kuznetsov, and Backstrom will center wing T.J. Oshie.

The Aussie scored the lone goal for Washington in Monday night's preseason game.

“There's still a little bit of confusion on everybody's side,” Lars Eller said postgame.

The small European country has invested in its national hockey program and is starting to see some big dividends.

"He’s got to get into double digits this year,” Coach Barry Trotz said.

Young prospects aiming for roster spots will get their shot Monday against the Devils, who will debut former Capital Marcus Johansson.

The 20-year-old defenseman lost 24 pounds this summer.
