  • Chara became the fifth defenseman in NHL history to play 1,600 games when he skated 19:42 in a 6-3 win over the Islanders on Saturday. Chara laid three hits, blocked a shot, fired one shot and finished plus-2, but he has gone 17 games without a point. Twelve more games and Chara will tie the great Ray Bourque, but that will need to wait until 2021-22 if he plays. The Caps have just eight regular-season games left.

  • Based on line rushes at morning skate, Chara (undisclosed) is on track to return to action Thursday against the Islanders, Samantha Pell of The Washington Post reports. Chara will slot into his usual bottom-pairing role for Thursday's contest. The towering blueliner has picked up nine points through 45 games this season.

  • Chara (undisclosed) won't play in Sunday's game versus the Bruins, Mike Vogel of the Capitals' official site reports. Chara is feeling the effects of blocking a shot during Saturday's win over the Flyers, and he'll miss his first game of the season as a result. The 44-year-old will be replaced by Trevor van Riemsdyk on the third defensive pairing.

  • Chara has posted no points and a minus-5 rating in his last 14 appearances. "Big Z" has been a steady presence on the third pairing alongside Nick Jensen in his first season with the Capitals, but the 44-year-old is clearly not the offensive force he once was, so he's not much of a fantasy asset these days.

  • Chara registered an assist and three hits while logging 17:23 of ice time during Thursday's 5-3 win over the Flyers. After failing to find the scoresheet in five straight games, Chara has posted two helpers and a plus-2 rating in his last three contests. The 43-year-old blueliner's days as a Norris Trophy contender may be over, but Chara is on his best pace offensively since the 2016-17 season and his steadying presence has enabled Nick Jensen to reach a new level in his development, giving Washington a reliable duo for its third defense pairing.
