Hathaway logged an assist, two shots on goal and five hits in Sunday's 3-2 loss to the Kings.
After a five-game absence in the COVID-19 protocols, Hathaway played 14:33 in his return. The 30-year-old winger was listed on the second line Sunday, though his ice time was more in line with his usual bottom-six role. He'll provide a veteran presence up front for the Capitals while their forward depth remains tested due to the protocols. Hathaway has 10 points, 55 shots, 99 hits, 16 PIM and a plus-9 rating through 26 appearances this year.
