  • Connolly will return to action Sunday against the Oilers, Isabelle Isabelle Khurshudyan of The Washington Post reports. The first-round pick in the 2010 NHL Entry Draft has missed the last seven games with an upper-body injury, but will take the ice on the fourth line with Jay Beagle and Alex Chiasson. At the moment, Chiasson still occupies Connolly's spot on the second power-play unit, so keep in mind that his fantasy value is a bit lower than it was pre-injury (at least for Sunday's contest).

  • Capitals' Brett Connolly: Medically cleared

    Connolly (upper body) has been given the green light from the medical staff to return to action, Tom Gulitti of reports. Now that Connolly is healthy, the decision on when he returns to the game-day lineup falls to coach Barry Trotz. It appears the winger will wait until Sunday's matchup with Edmonton, which will give him a couple more practice days to get his legs back under him. Once back to operating at 100 percent, the 25-year-old will likely replace Liam O'Brien on the depth chart.

  • Capitals' Brett Connolly: Takes ice Monday
    By RotoWire Staff

    Connolly (upper body) is nearing a return after skating prior to the team's practice Monday, Isabelle Khurshudyan of The Washington Post reports. A first-round pick in 2010, Connolly has been sidelined for each of the team's past four contests. Monday marked the first time that Connolly took the ice since being injured, effectively ruling him out of Monday's game against Arizona, as well as Tuesday's matchup with the Sabres. That said, if Connolly is able to participate in a full-contact practice or two in the coming week, he may have a chance to return to the lineup Friday against Pittsburgh.

  • Capitals' Brett Connolly: Not ready to return
    By RotoWire Staff

    Connolly (upper body) will not rejoin the lineup against the Islanders on Thursday, Tarik El-Bashir of NBS Sports Washington reports. Connolly will miss his third straight outing with his upper-body ailment. The Caps have used a couple different players in the winger's stead, with Nathan Walker expected to suit up in New York. After scoring Opening Night, the 25-year-old Connolly has been bogged down in a nine-game goalless streak during which he has managed just one helper.

  • Connolly is expected to miss at least two games due to an upper-body injury he sustained during Thursday's 6-2 loss to Vancouver, Isabelle Khurshudyan of The Washington Post reports. It's safe to assume Connolly will miss Saturday's game against the Oilers and Sunday's meeting with the Flames, so the 25-year-old winger will now set his sights on overcoming his upper-body ailment in time for Thursday's clash with the Islanders. On Friday, the Capitals reached into their AHL system and recalled Anthony Peluso, who will occupy a bottom-six role while Connolly is sidelined.
