Player Outlook

Brooks Orpik didn't score a single goal last year, but that's nothing new -- he's done that (or not done it, as the case may be) four times in his career, and he's only broken 20 points once. Oddly, he put a career-high 93 shots on goal in that unsuccessful bid to get one past a netminder; he'd never cracked 70 previously. There's no reason to expect a sudden evolution in the tough blueliner's age-37 campaign, so while fantasy owners in specialty formats can look to Orpik for hits and blocked shots, that's the extent of his value.

Player News
  • Orpik will not become property of the Golden Knights in the expansion draft, JJ Regan of CSN Mid-Atlantic reports. The veteran left defenseman has two years remaining on his contract valued at $5.5 million annually; that's a heavy chunk of change, even for an expansion franchise with a clean slate. He is also 36 years old with a checkered injury history. Nonetheless, Capitals GM Brian MacLellan will have to be creative this offseason, since 11 active players from last season are due for new contracts.

  • Capitals' Brooks Orpik: Expected to play Tuesday
    By RotoWire Staff

    Orpik is probable against the Flames on Tuesday after picking up an undisclosed ailment Saturday, Isabelle Khurshudyan of the Washington Post reports. Orpik was originally described as having a maintenance day, so it seems as though the Caps aren't too worried about the defenseman's availability. The bruising veteran is still searching for his first goal of the season, so in the event he is unable to suit up, fantasy owners are unlikely to feel too much of an impact unless they are in need of hits or blocked shots.

  • Capitals' Brooks Orpik: Probable Thursday
    By RotoWire Staff

    Orpik (lower body) is expected to be in the lineup for Thursday's contest with New Jersey, Isabelle Khurshudyan of the Washington Post reports. The veteran blueliner has missed out on the Caps' last three games with the injury, but he was a full participant in Thursday's morning skate. Though he's about as reliable as you can get on the back end, Orpik's 12 points in 59 games mean he doesn't offer much from a fantasy standpoint outside of rating (plus-32) and hits (142).

  • Capitals' Brooks Orpik: Out again Tuesday
    By RotoWire Staff

    Orpik (lower body) will not dress for Tuesday's tilt versus the Rangers, Isabelle Khurshudyan of the Washington Post reports. Orpik stands to miss his third straight contest Tuesday, but his 12 points (all assists) through 59 contests this season don't lend themselves to widespread fantasy relevance anyway. The veteran blueliner's next chance to rejoin the lineup arrives Thursday against the Devils, while Nate Schmidt is expected to pair with Kevin Shattenkirk for Tuesday's tilt.

  • Capitals' Brooks Orpik: Leaves practice early Monday
    By RotoWire Staff

    Orpik (lower body) was a limited participant in Monday's practice, Isabelle Khurshudyan of The Washington Post reports. The rugged defenseman has been held out of the last two games with the ailment and it's not clear if he'll be ready to return for Tuesday's clash against the Rangers. Check back after the morning skate, but don't be surprised if the Capitals err on the side of caution and give him a little more time to heal.
