Capitals' Brett Connolly: May draw into lineup Tuesday

Connolly may play in Tuesday's contest versus the Avalanche, Isabelle Khurshudyan of The Washington Post reports.

Connolly has yet to make his Capitals debut after signing a one-year, $850,000 deal with the team in the summer. The sixth overall pick in 2010, Connolly has posted a modest 59 points in 210 NHL contests, including a 25-point career-high campaign with the Bruins last season. Despite serving as a healthy scratch for Washington's first two games, he's been practicing on the third line with Lars Eller, which is where the 24-year-old will probably slot in once he suits up for game action.
