  • Updating a previous report, Stephenson (upper body) has been cleared to play and will be in the lineup for Wednesday's contest against the Blackhawks, Tom Gulitti of reports. With T.J. Oshie (upper body) and Andre Burakovsky (thumb) both unlikely to play Wednesday, the Capitals likely pushed hard for Stephenson's return, and he will return to action after missing just one game with his ailment. That said, the Saskatchewan native has just six points in 18 appearances on the campaign, so don't expect a sudden offensive outburst.

  • Stephenson (upper body) is slated to return to the Caps' lineup against Chicago on Wednesday, Isabelle Khurshudyan of The Washington Post reports. If Stephenson is able to suit up, it would likely be as a replacement for T.J. Oshie (upper body), who is considered doubtful versus the Blackhawks. Prior to getting hurt, the 23-year-old Stephenson was bogged down in a 10-game goalless streak during which he has logged a paltry one helper. Once Washington gets healthy, the natural center will probably find himself fighting for a consistent spot in the lineup on a night-to-night basis.

  • Stephenson (upper body) is still day-to-day but is nearing a return, Isabelle Khurshudyan of The Washington Post reports. The 23-year-old was forced to make an early exit from Saturday's game due to the injury, but not much else is known about the situation. With Stephenson out of the lineup Monday, Minnesota native Travis Boyd will make his NHL debut.

  • Stephenson (upper body) exited Saturday's game and will not return, Tarik El-Bashir of NBC Sports Washington reports. Stephenson had been playing on the third line with Lars Eller and Brett Connolly when the injury occurred. The 23-year-old forward will be re-evaluated Sunday and is questionable for Monday's tilt against the Sharks.

  • Capitals' Chandler Stephenson: Promoted to top six
    By RotoWire Staff

    Stephenson skated on a line with Nicklas Backstrom and T.J. Oshie during Thursday's practice, Isabelle Khurshudyan of The Washington Post reports. Head coach Barry Trotz is obviously looking for a spark as his second line has gone quite cold in the last few games. The 23-year-old forward is poised to take the place of Jakub Vrana, who has only one point in the last 10 games. Washington's lines are in a great deal of flux to start the season, so it may be a short-lived promotion for the rookie. In any case, his value in standard and daily formats will get a significant boost as a result of the increased ice time with such talented linemates.
