  • Alzner underwent surgery to repair a sports hernia Wednesday and is expected to be healthy before the start of the 2016-17 season, Isabelle Khurshudyan of The Washington Post reports. Previous reports indicated that Alzner dealt with a broken thumb, strained oblique, and hip flexor injury last season. His latest procedure involved repairing the pelvic floor as it relates to the sports hernia. The 27-year-old defender has back-to-back seasons with 21 points and a plus-14 rating. He hasn't missed a single regular-season game in three straight campaigns, which should offset most of the concern raised by his recent maladies.

  • Alzner dealt with a broken thumb, strained oblique, and hip flexor injury during the regular season, before sustaining a groin tear in the playoffs, Stephen Whyno of the Associated Press reports. Despite that long list of ailments, Alzner was able to play all 82 games for the third consecutive season. However, the groin tear sustained in Tuesday's Game 6 was enough to knock him out of the deciding contest after 5:16 of ice time. At this point, it's not clear if Alzner will require surgery to correct his latest ailment.

  • Capitals' Karl Alzner: Leaves with groin injury
    By RotoWire Staff

    Alzner indicated after the game that he exited early due to a groin strain, Chuck Gormley of CSN Mid-Atlantic reports. Barry Trotz added that Alzner has been dealing with the injury for a while. It's not a surprise given his ironman nature that he's played through it but the blueliner now has the rest of the offseason to heal up. Alzner finished the regular season with 21 points in 82 games, adding two more in the postseason. The 27-year-old will return to Washington in 2016-17 for the final season of a four-year contract.

    Alzner departed Tuesday's Game 4 early with an undisclosed injury, Dan Rosen of NHL.com reports. Alzner's injury surfaced in the first period when his stick was slashed, but he briefly returned in the second period, taking two shifts. Unfortunately, he skipped the remainder of the second as well as the third period. Expect the team to update his status at some point but his season may be over if the Capitals are unable to force a Game 7.

Alzner picked up a pair of helpers in the first-round series against the Flyers, but he might have a tougher time cracking the code on the Penguins defense, as it ranks sixth in the NHL.
