    Orlov logged an assist, two hits and two blocked shots in Wednesday's 4-3 overtime loss to the Golden Knights.

In his last five outings, Orlov has six points, though four of them came in an 8-4 win over the Canadiens last Saturday. The 30-year-old defenseman has enjoyed a career year with 12 goals, 35 points, 118 shots on net, 121 hits, 90 blocked shots and a plus-25 rating through 17 outings.

  • Capitals' Dmitry Orlov: Secures helper in thrilling win

    Orlov registered an assist in Friday's 4-3 shootout win over the Sabres.

  • Capitals' Dmitry Orlov: Two tallies including OT winner

    Orlov scored two goals, one on the power play and the other the overtime winner, in Tuesday's 4-3 victory over the Penguins.

    His first tally tied the game at 2-2 to wrap up a wild first period, then Orlov flashed some impressive skill in OT, taking the puck out of the corner in Pittsburgh's end, fending off a defender to work his way into the slot and then ripping a shot top shelf past Tristan Jarry. Orlov has found another gear since Christmas despite missing four total games due to a stint on the COVID-19 list and a suspension, collecting three goals and eight points in his last 11 games.

  • Capitals' Dmitry Orlov: Logs assist in win

    Orlov registered an assist, two shots on goal, two hits and three blocked shots in Friday's 5-0 win over the Stars.

The 30-year-old blueliner reached the 20-point mark for the seven straight campaign -- he's at five goals, 15 helpers, 63 shots on net, 72 hits, 46 blocks 34 PIM and a plus-16 rating as a steady top-four defenseman.

  • Capitals' Dmitry Orlov: Eligible to play Monday

    Orlov (suspension) will be available against Vegas on Monday after serving his two-game ban for kneeing.

    Orlov needs just one more point to reach the 20-point threshold for the seventh consecutive season and could even push for the career-high he set back in 2016-17 (33 points in 82 games). Despite logging over a minute per game with the man advantage, the 30-year-old blueliner has just one power-play goal to show for it.

  • Capitals' Dmitry Orlov: Receives two-game suspension

    Orlov was suspended two games for kneeing the Jets' Nikolaj Ehlers (lower body) on Wednesday.

    There was no penalty on the play, but Orlov will answer for his misdeed by missing games Thursday versus the Bruins and Saturday versus the Senators. He'll be eligible to return Monday against the Golden Knights. Matt Irwin will likely enter the lineup in place of Orlov.

  • Capitals' Dmitry Orlov: Set for hearing with league

    Orlov will have a hearing with the Department of Player Safety on Wednesday for kneeing the Jets' Nikolaj Ehlers (lower body).

    Orlov racked up a goal and an assist in Tuesday's matchup with Winnipeg but now faces a potential suspension that could sideline him versus Boston on Thursday at least. With John Carlson's (COVID-19 protocols) availability in doubt, missing the 30-year-old Orlov would further stretch the Caps' blue line and would likely force Matt Irwin and Dennis Cholowski into bigger roles.

  • Capitals' Dmitry Orlov: Quiet in loss

    Orlov had two shots and two hits in a 4-2 loss to the Canucks on Sunday.

    Orlov missed the previous two games in COVID-19 protocols. The defenseman has 17 points in 37 games this season.
