Capitals' Carl Hagelin: Still not skating
Hagelin (hip/eye) has not resumed skating following hip and eye injuries, Tom Gulitti of NHL.com reports.
Hagelin indicated during his end-of-season press availability that he has yet to be cleared to play with his eye injury and has not resumed skating following hip resurfacing surgery, but he's hoping to return to action next season. The 34-year-old winger hasn't played in an NHL game since Feb. 21, 2022, and his prospects for resuming his career, in Washington or elsewhere, remain murky.... See More ... See Less
Capitals' Carl Hagelin: Has hip resurfacing surgery
Hagelin is out indefinitely after undergoing left hip resurfacing surgery on Monday.
Hagelin also underwent hip surgery Oct. 10 and hasn't played at all this season. While the Capitals didn't provide a timetable for his recovery from the latest procedure on his hip, they did say it would be a "lengthy recovery process." The 34-year-old recorded three goals and 14 points in 53 contests while averaging 14:14 of ice time during the 2021-22 campaign.... See More ... See Less
Capitals' Carl Hagelin: Skating before practice
Hagelin (hip/eye) took a twirl on the ice Wednesday prior to practice but won't be back in the lineup soon. Coach Peter Laviolette told reporters, "How good is that to see. He's out there just testing, just seeing where he's at. ... Just wanted to get a feel. He's still in the distant future," Tom Gulitti of NHL.com reports.
Hagelin was last on the ice for the Capitals Feb. 28 versus Toronto and is coming up on a year without getting into a professional contest. At this point, Hagelin remains without a clear recovery timeline and should probably still be considered out indefinitely moving forward.... See More ... See Less
Capitals' Carl Hagelin: Moves to LTIR
Hagelin (hip) was placed on the long-term injured list Wednesday, Matt Weyrich of NBC Sports Washington reports.
Hagelin was already considered out indefinitely, but being formally placed on LTIR offers the Capitals additional flexibility in addressing their mounting injury woes. No timeline has been offered for the 34-year-old's recovery.... See More ... See Less
Capitals' Carl Hagelin: Ruled out indefinitely
Hagelin underwent hip surgery Monday and will be sidelined indefinitely.
It's the latest blow for Hagelin who was already working his way back from a serious eye injury that cost him the last three months of the previous campaign. Even if Hagelin were fit enough to play, he would likely be hard-pressed to push for a top-six role. Depending on when Hagelin is given the all-clear, he should be capable of producing 20-30 points if he can suit up in more than half the games this year.... See More ... See Less
Capitals' Carl Hagelin: Going on injured non-roster list
Hagelin (lower body) will begin the season on the injured non-roster list, Tom Gulitti of NHL.com reports.
Hagelin dealt with a lower-body injury during training camp after returning from an eye issue that sidelined him for the final 27 games of the 2021-22 season. He also missed all six of Washington's playoff contests. Hagelin will be unavailable again for the start of the year.... See More ... See Less
Capitals' Carl Hagelin: Dealing with new injury
Hagelin (eye) missed Thursday's skate test with an undisclosed injury, Samantha Pell of The Washington Post reports.
Hagelin's injury is unrelated to the eye injury that has kept him sidelined since March. The 34-year-old Swede was cleared to resume contact earlier in September after undergoing multiple eye surgeries. Further updates on Hagelin's availability are expected prior to Washington's first preseason action on Sunday against the Sabres.... See More ... See Less
Capitals' Carl Hagelin: Cleared for contact
Per Tarik El-Bashir of The Athletic, Hagelin (eye) wore a normal jersey while skating with his injured teammates Thursday, indicating he's been cleared for contact.
Hagelin missed the final 27 regular-season games and the entirety of the Capitals' first-round playoff loss to the Panthers last campaign after undergoing multiple eye surgeries in March, but the fact that he's been evidently been cleared for contact suggests he may be trending toward being ready for training camp. Before undergoing his season-ending surgery, the 34-year-old winger picked up three goals and 14 points while averaging 14:14 of ice time through 53 contests.... See More ... See Less
Capitals' Carl Hagelin: Resumes skating Wednesday
Hagelin (eye) was on the ice with the Capitals' strength and conditioning coach during Wednesday's optional skate, Tarik El-Bashir of The Athletic reports.
Hagelin was in a full face shield and not wearing any pads while he did some light skating drills with the training staff. The 33-year-old is unlikely to play again this season, but his presence on the ice is an indicator that he is progressing after undergoing two eye procedures to address a freak injury sustained during practice in early March....

Capitals' Carl Hagelin: Facing second surgery
Hagelin is expected to undergo a second surgery to address his eye injury, Samantha Pell of The Washington Post reports.
At this point, Hagelin should be considered questionable at best to return this season. If he does get back into the lineup, the winger will look to get back over the 20-point threshold after missing that mark last season and figures to take on a bottom-six spot in the lineup....

Capitals' Carl Hagelin: Gets eye surgery
Washington announced Sunday that Hagelin is out indefinitely after undergoing surgery on his left eye earlier in the week.
Hagelin is scheduled to have additional follow-up examinations in the weeks to come before the Capitals determine a more precise timeline for his return. Before suffering the injury, Hagelin had provided three goals and 11 assists through 53 games.... See More ... See Less
Capitals' Carl Hagelin: Placed on IR

Hagelin has averaged 14:34 of ice time and registered seven points over the last 10 games. The 33-year-old underwent eye surgery Tuesday and currently does not have a clear timeline for recovery established. He will miss most, if not all, of March due to his LTIR status.... See More ... See Less
Capitals' Carl Hagelin: Undergoes eye surgery
Hagelin had surgery on his injured eye Tuesday and will be seeing another doctor to determine the next steps, according to general manager Brian MacLellan, Tom Gulitti of NHL.com reports.
The fact that Hagelin immediately had surgery to repair his damaged eye after Tuesday's incident at practice certainly doesn't bode well for the winger being able to return anytime soon. At this point, with two months remaining in the regular season, the 33-year-old Swede could be in danger of missing the rest of the campaign, though the team hasn't issued a specific recovery timeline....

Capitals' Carl Hagelin: Out long term
Hagelin (eye) will be out for "an extended period of time," Samantha Pell of The Washington Post reports.
Hagelin took a stick to the face toward the end of Tuesday's practice and has suffered an eye injury as a result. The 33-year-old Swede has been a valuable member of Washington's highly utilized fourth line alongside Nic Dowd and Garnet Hathaway and his absence -- particularly on the penalty kill -- will surely be felt by a Capitals team that has struggled mightily to keep players in the lineup throughout the 2021-22 campaign....

Capitals' Carl Hagelin: Suffers injury in practice
Hagelin suffered a facial injury in practice Tuesday, per Tarik El-Bashir of The Athletic.
Hagelin took a stick to the face toward the end of Tuesday's practice, El-Bashir adds. The 33-year-old forward has averaged 14:10 of ice time and distributed three assists over the last five games.... See More ... See Less
Capitals' Carl Hagelin: Strong two-way play in win
Hagelin had two assists and a plus-4 rating in Thursday's 5-3 win over Philadelphia.
Washington's fourth line carried the team to victory in this one, and Hagelin was a key contributor. He assisted on the game-tying and game-winning goals scored 1:45 apart by Garnet Hathaway. The speedster has a modest 14 points in 50 games, but most of Hagelin's value comes from his responsible defensive game.... See More ... See Less
Capitals' Carl Hagelin: Pots goal Thursday
Hagelin tallied a goal and added two shots during Thursday's 5-2 win over the Canadiens.
Hagelin is on a bit of a tear with a goal and four points over his last four games. The Swedish winger is well matched on the fourth line alongside Nic Dowd and Garnet Hathaway but does not generate offense consistently enough to be of much help in most fantasy circles.... See More ... See Less
Capitals' Carl Hagelin: Quiet in return
Hagelin finished with two shots in a 4-2 loss to the Canucks on Sunday.
Hagelin had missed the previous two games under COVID-19 protocols before returning Sunday. The 33-year-old has just two points and 15 shots over his last 10 games.... See More ... See Less
