The Capitals assigned McMichael (not injury related) to their AHL affiliate Wednesday, per TSN. McMichael began his mandatory seven-day quarantine after arriving in Washington on Saturday, so he won't be eligible to join the Capitals until this weekend at the earliest. The 2019 first-round pick is expected to join his junior team whenever the OHL season gets underway, but he could stick with Washington's taxi squad until then.
McMichael has arrived in Washington and begun his mandatory quarantine, Samantha Pell of The Washington Post reports. McMichael won't be able to practice with the Capitals before they leave on their four-game road trip, which begins Thursday in Buffalo, but he could join the team on the road once he's cleared. The 2019 first-round pick just put up four goals and eight points in seven games with Team Canada at the World Junior Championship and could find himself on Washington's taxi squad until the OHL season gets underway.
McMichael will join the Capitals training camp now that the IIHF World Junior Championship has concluded, Samantha Pell of The Washington Post reported on Thursday. Fresh off a four-goal, eight-point stint for silver medal-winning Team Canada in the World Juniors, McMichael has a legitimate shot to make the Capitals taxi squad given that the OHL remains shut down due. The 19-year-old has tremendous upside in dynasty formats but is unlikely to garner enough of a role on a deep Capitals squad to pay dividends in standard leagues during the 2021 campaign.
