• Released from Caps' training camp roster

    News: Aaron Ness was released from the Capitals' training camp roster Monday.
    Analysis: Aaron Ness signed a two-way contract with the Capitals in July, but they apparently feel he didn't do enough in the preseason to give him an NHL roster spot, so he'll likely begin the season at AHL Hershey.
  • Capitals Sign Ness To Two-Way Deal

    News: Aaron Ness signed a one-year, two-way contract with the Capitals on Wednesday.
    Analysis: The 25-year-old Aaron Ness saw 20 games of action with the Islanders in 2013-14, but spent all of the past season at AHL Bridgeport, where he tallied eight goals and 45 points in 74 games. That's impressive offensive production for a blueliner, but it likely won't be enough for him to stake a claim to an Opening Night roster spot with the Capitals. Look for him to suit up for AHL Hershey this season.
  • Isles Loan Ness To Bridgeport

    News: Aaron Ness was loaned to AHL Bridgeport on Wednesday.
    Analysis: Aaron Ness had been a healthy scratch in two of the past four games, so his demotion doesn't come as a major surprise. He has just three points and a minus-13 rating in 20 games this season.
  • Isles' Ness Recalled From AHL Bridgeport

    News: Aaron Ness was recalled from AHL Bridgeport on Thursday.
    Analysis: Coach Jack Capuano said Aaron Ness will more than likely make his season debut Thursday vs. the Hurricanes, likely as a member of the team's third defensive pairing. Ness will probably only be up with the Islanders for as long as Matt Donovan continues to deal with a hip injury.
