  • Stanislav Galiev: Heading home to Russia
    By RotoWire Staff

    Galiev agreed to terms on a two-year contract with KHL Ak Bars on Friday. After failing to crack the 23-man roster for the Capitals this past season, Galiev will join the KHL. Despite hailing from Russia, the 25-year-old has never played for any European-based club aside from national junior teams. Instead, the winger came up through the QMJHL with the Saint John Sea Dogs before getting selected in the third round of the 2010 NHL Entry Draft. Galiev put up a solid 40 points in 56 outings for AHL Hershey last season, so don't be surprised to see him get another look from an NHL club down the road.

  • Capitals' Stanislav Galiev: Caps waive four players
    By RotoWire Staff

    Galiev and three others were waived by the Capitals on Saturday, Renaud Lavoie of TVA Sports reports. Christian Thomas, Brad Malone, and Paul Carey were the other forwards hitting the waiver wire as Washington slims down its roster before Opening Night. Galiev, known to be an offensive creator, has played in 26 NHL games over his career, totaling one goal and three assists.

  • Galiev will draw into the lineup if T.J. Oshie (illness) is unable to play, Isabelle Khurshudyan of The Washington Post reports. Galiev has not played since Mar. 1 against the Penguins, but with T.J. Oshie (illness) not on the trip for Friday's game in New Jersey, his return to the lineup seems likely. The 24-year-old winger is slated to play on the fourth line with Mike Richards and Daniel Winnik.

  • Galiev will skate at left wing alongside Nicklas Backstrom and T.J. Oshie for Tuesday's game against the Panthers, Chuck Gormley of CSN Washington reports. Galiev is filling in for Alex Ovechkin (lower body), who was suspended by the NHL for skipping the All-Star game festivities over the weekend. Ovechkin's injury is not believed to be serious, so this prominent assignment for Galiev is likely limited to Tuesday's game only. However, the increase in ice time he will get -- not to mention the quality of his linemates -- gives Galiev some sleeper potential in daily fantasy leagues, so keep him in mind when you fill out your lineup.

  • Galiev will be in the lineup Tuesday against the Bruins, Isabelle Khurshudyan of The Washington Post reports. Galiev will take Michael Latta's place on the fourth line and is working with the second power-play unit as well. With just two assists in seven games this season, the third-round pick from the 2010 Draft is a reach outside of deeper leagues even with the special teams assignment.
