  • Capitals' Evgeny Kuznetsov: Notches 59-point campaign

    by RotoWire Staff | Special to CBSSports.com
    (5/18/17) Kuznetsov finished the 2016-17 season with 19 goals and 40 assists in 82 games, adding 10 points through 13 postseason contests.

    The 24-year-old center regressed a bit from a 77-point breakout campaign in 2015-16, but he's firmly established himself as a key cog in Washington's high-octane offense. The main question regarding Kuznetsov is whether the Russian RFA will agree to a long-term contract extension this summer or opt for a bridge deal that will bring him closer to unrestricted free agency in the future. In either case, he's a reliable, high-upside producer who should come off the board early in next season's fantasy drafts.

    Capitals' Evgeny Kuznetsov: Heading to Worlds

    by RotoWire Staff | Special to CBSSports.com
    (5/11/17) Kuznetsov was summoned to Team Russia's World Championship roster Thursday.

    Though Washington again bowed out early, the 23-year-old pivot was a productive offensive force in the playoffs with five goals and 10 points in 13 games. He'll surely boost Team Russia's championship aspirations.

    Capitals' Evgeny Kuznetsov: Pitches in two helpers

    by RotoWire Staff | Special to CBSSports.com
    (5/8/17) Kuznetsov collected a pair of assists in Monday's 5-2 win over Pittsburgh in Game 6.

    The Russian center has cranked things up in Round 2 against the Caps' Metropolitan Division rival, posting seven points in six games. Kuznetsov has added a healthy 22 shots on goal during that span, as well, making him a lethal second-line weapon down the middle behind Nicklas Backstrom.

    Capitals' Evgeny Kuznetsov: Three-game goal streak

    by RotoWire Staff | Special to CBSSports.com
    (5/6/17) Kuznetsov scored a goal Saturday in a 4-2 win over Pittsburgh. The goal extends his goal streak to three games and three goals (four points).

    Kuznetsov's regular season disappointed fantasy owners, but he's making up for it this postseason. He has five points, including four goals, in five games against the Pens. Saturday's goal stood as the winner.

    Capitals' Evgeny Kuznetsov: Finds twine in Game 4 loss

    by RotoWire Staff | Special to CBSSports.com
    (5/3/17) Kuznetsov scored a goal in Wednesday's Game 4 loss to the Penguins.

    The 2010 first-rounder also rattled off a game-high six shots on goal, but it wasn't enough, as Braden Holtby surrendered three goals on just 18 shots while Marc-Andre Fleury thwarted 36 of 38 at the other end of the rink. Kuznetsov has been moderately productive through 10 postseason games so far, recording seven points, but time could be running out for him to bolster his playoff ledger with the Caps down 3-1 in the series and facing elimination Saturday.
