    Capitals' Michael Latta: Out Thursday, but healthy again

    Latta (upper body) is healthy but will not play Thursday night against the Canucks, per Capitals coach Barry Trotz, Isabelle Khurshudyan of the Washington Post reports. "He's healthy right now, but I'm probably just going to hold him off one more day," Trotz said of Latta, who was bothered by an arm injury near the end of 2015. It's not clear if that ailment is related to this latest upper-body issue which caused him to miss a game this past Sunday. At any rate, he should be available for Saturday's tilt with the Sabres.

    Capitals' Michael Latta: Expected to play Thursday

    Latta (upper body) is expected to be available for Thursday's game against the Canucks, Isabelle Khurshudyan of the Washington Post reports. It appears as though Latta's ailment isn't particularly serious, as the 24-year-old forward was a full participant in Tuesday's practice after missing Sunday's game against Ottawa with an upper-body injury. If he's able to go Thursday, the former third-round pick will likely slot into the Capitals' lineup as a bottom-six forward.

    Capitals' Michael Latta: Ruled out with upper-body injury

    Latta was a late scratch prior to Sunday's game against the Senators due to an upper-body injury. He'll be replaced on the Caps' fourth line by Stanislav Galiev. Even if Latta's injury proves to be a lingering issue, it shouldn't have much of an impact in the fantasy realm, as the forward has produced only six points in 28 games this season.

    Capitals' Michael Latta: Will return Thursday

    Latta (arm) will return to the lineup for Thursday's game against the Hurricanes, Isabelle Khurshudyan of the Washington Post reports. Latta's will wind up missing just one game due to the arm injury suffered in Monday's contest against the Sabres. The third-line center should once again take his place between the likes of Tom Wilson and Jason Chimera, looking to improve on his six points (three goals, three assists) through 24 games this season.

    Capitals' Michael Latta: Out Wednesday, could play Thursday

    Coach Barry Trotz indicated Wednesday that Latta (arm) is close to returning, and could play Thursday against the Hurricanes, Isabelle Khurshudyan of the Washington Post reports. Latta injured his arm in Monday's game against the Sabres, but it shouldn't cost him too much time overall. However, the news rules him out for Wednesday's contest, making Thursday the likely return date.

    Capitals' Michael Latta: Posts rare two-point night Wednesday

    Latta scored a goal and added a helper in Wednesday's 2-1 win over the visiting Senators. He also skated to a plus-2. The fourth-liner was influential in the Caps' victory, opening the scoring 14:06 into the first period before grabbing a secondary assist on John Carlson's snipe in the second. He actually skated 36 seconds less (7:29) than his season average in this one (8:05), so it was a rather efficient night for the 24-year-old grinder.

    Capitals' Michael Latta: Gets assist, fighting major Thursday

    Latta returned to the lineup and registered an assist and seven penalty minutes in Thursday's 4-1 over the Bruins. In addition to his first point this season, Latta also recorded the Capitals' first fight of the campaign. A healthy scratch in the previous two games, the former third-round pick of the Predators from 2009 has had trouble staying in the lineup consistently, and although the performance should give him the chance to be a more permanent fixture in the lineup, his lack of quality minutes doesn't afford him much fantasy relevance at this point.

  • Scores goal Wednesday

    News: Michael Latta scored a goal in Wednesday's 4-3 shootout loss to Carolina.
    Analysis: Michael Latta also had two shots on goal and two hits after missing practice time last week with a lower body injury. With Chris Brown (hand) out for several weeks, Latta's chances of making the team as a fourth-line forward certainly improved after Wednesday's performance, although his fantasy value still remains quite low even in deeper leagues.
  • Will play Wednesday against Carolina

    News: Michael Latta will take the ice for Wednesday's preseason game against the Hurricanes, Chuck Gormley of CSN Washington reports.
    Analysis: Washington originally had expected that Michael Latta would take part in Monday's exhibition against the Islanders, but the 24-year-old forward was ultimately unable to suit up for the contest. The Capital's still have three preseason tilts remaining, so Latta will have plenty of time to rid himself of any rust he may have collected while recovering from a lower-body injury. He registered six assists in 53 games with the Capitals last season, and will likely slot in as a bottom-six forward with the team in 2015-16.
