Player News
  • Kuznetsov is currently tied with Jakub Vrana for fourth in scoring on the Capitals with 52 points in 63 games. Kuznetsov has had a slightly down year after racking up 72 points in 76 games last season and 83 in 79 contests the year before, but he's still been a rock-solid fantasy option. Look for the 27-year-old Russian to bounce back to a near point-per-game pace in 2020-21.

  • Kuznetsov registered an assist while logging 19:11 of ice time during Monday's 3-2 shootout loss to the Sabres. Kuznetsov's production has taken a substantial hit due to the fact that he has gone 11 games without a goal, producing just six assists during that time. The 27-year-old has oodles of offensive upside, but the streaky nature of his production has been a headache for fantasy owners who reasonably expected another 70-80-point campaign from the skilled Russian.

  • Kuznetsov produced two assists in Sunday's 4-3 win over the Wild. Kuznetsov set up the second of Alex Ovechkin's first-period tallies, and also drew an assist on Tom Wilson's third-period marker. In six games since his return from an upper-body injury, Kuznetsov has racked up five helpers, eight PIM and 12 shots. He's been playing on Alex Ovechkin's line recently, which could explain the drop in goals as that role requires Kuznetsov to be more of a play-maker. Through 59 contests, he's at 51 points (19 goals, 32 helpers) and 123 shots.

  • Kuznetsov (upper body) will be back in the lineup for Thursday's matchup with Montreal, JJ Regan of NBC Sports Washington reports. Following his three-game stint on the shelf, Kuznetsov will slot back into a second-line role and should rejoin the top power-play unit. Prior to getting hurt, the world-class center racked up three goals in his previous five outings and will no doubt be eager to pick up where he left off.

  • Kuznetsov (upper body) has been ruled out of Monday's game versus the Golden Knights, Tom Gulitti of NHL.com reports. Kuznetsov took line rushes and worked on the second power-play unit Sunday, so although he's getting closer, the pivot won't be ready Monday. Lars Eller is expected to remain as the team's second-line center while Kuznetsov aims to return Thursday versus the Canadiens.
