The Capitals assigned McMichael (not injury related) to their AHL affiliate Wednesday, per TSN.

McMichael began his mandatory seven-day quarantine after arriving in Washington on Saturday, so he won't be eligible to join the Capitals until this weekend at the earliest. The 2019 first-round pick is expected to join his junior team whenever the OHL season gets underway, but he could stick with Washington's taxi squad until then.
