  • Capitals' Aaron Ness: Scratched on Sunday
    By RotoWire Staff

    Ness didn't play in Sunday's 2-1 overtime victory over Edmonton. The 27-year-old has now been scratched in 10 of the last 12 games and is clearly having a hard time carving out a role in Washington's lineup. Despite being a strong skater and having good passing ability, Ness could be sent down to the minors when Matt Niskanen (upper body) returns -- especially since he's played in more AHL games than NHL games for each of his seven professional seasons.

  • Capitals' Aaron Ness: Picks up helper Saturday
    By RotoWire Staff

    Ness had an assist in Saturday's 6-1 rout over the Canadiens. The helper was Ness's first point since the 2015-16 season in only his fourth NHL game over the last two campaigns. Aside from a couple of bad penalties in the season opener, the second-round pick of the Minnesota Wild in the 2008 NHL Entry Draft has acquitted himself fairly well on the third pairing alongside Taylor Chorney. With youngster Christian Djoos pining for regular duty and top prospect Madison Bowey waiting in AHL Hershey, Ness will need more outings like this to keep his spot in the lineup. His fantasy value remains fairly limited for the time being.

  • Capitals' Aaron Ness: Assigned to AHL
    By RotoWire Staff

    Ness was assigned to AHL Hershey on Sunday. Ness has skated in the Capitals' last two games with Brooks Orpik (lower body) and Matt Niskanen (lower body) missing action, but the defenseman's demotion suggests that at least one of the injured blueliners will be back in action Tuesday against the Rangers. The 26-year-old Ness should see regular ice time with Hershey, with whom he's posted five goals and 16 points in 41 games.

  • Capitals' Aaron Ness: Promoted to big club
    By RotoWire Staff

    The Capitals recalled Ness from AHL Hershey on Thursday. Defensemen Brooks Orpik (undisclosed) and Matt Niskanen (lower body) are both questionable for Friday's game against Edmonton, so if they're both unable to go, Ness will likely draw into the lineup against the Oilers. The 26-year-old blueliner has notched 16 points in 41 games with AHL Hershey this season.

  • Capitals' Aaron Ness: Assigned to AHL
    By RotoWire Staff

    Ness was assigned to AHL Hershey on Sunday, Isabelle Khurshudyan of The Washington Post reports. Ness' reassignment to the minors perhaps suggests the Capitals are comfortable with the progress Matt Niskanen (upper body) has shown and could even get him back for Sunday's game against the Canucks. The 26-year-old Ness didn't make any appearances for the Capitals during his latest stint with the big club.
