Samsonov (undisclosed) missed a second straight practice Tuesday, Tom Gulitti of NHL.com reports.

Washington's unable to release any details regarding the reasoning behind Samsonov's absence due to the NHL's new injury update policy, but with over two weeks to go until round robin play gets underway, at this point there's no reason to suspect the 23-year-old netminder is in any danger of missing game action.
