  • Capitals' Garnet Hathaway: Unavailable Wednesday

    Hathaway (illness) won't play Wednesday versus the Lightning.

  • Capitals' Garnet Hathaway: Deflects in only goal in loss

    Hathaway scored a goal and added four hits in Sunday's 5-1 loss to the Wild.

    Hathaway deflected an Alex Ovechkin shot off his skate and through the pads of Cam Talbot to keep the Capitals from getting shut out.

  • Capitals' Garnet Hathaway: Efficient producer on fourth line

    Hathaway garnered an assist in Friday's 4-3 shootout win over the Hurricanes.

The American has managed to stay healthy outside of missing five games in early December while in COVID-19 protocols. We're talking about a player who starts his shifts in the defensive zone over 70 percent of the time, making his rate of offensive production all the more impressive. Oh, and he has 191 hits to boot.

  • Capitals' Garnet Hathaway: Slings helper in win

    Hathaway notched an assist, three hits and two blocked shots in Friday's 3-1 win over the Red Wings.

    Hathaway set up Alex Ovechkin for an empty-net goal in the third period. While Hathaway only played in five games in December, he was effective with two goals and three assists in that stretch. The 30-year-old winger is likely to remain in a bottom-six role with the Capitals' forward group nearly at full strength, so his chances to add offense will be more limited going forward. He's up to 11 points, 59 shots on net, 105 hits and a plus-10 rating in 28 contests.

  • Capitals' Garnet Hathaway: Earns assist in return

    Hathaway logged an assist, two shots on goal and five hits in Sunday's 3-2 loss to the Kings.

    After a five-game absence in the COVID-19 protocols, Hathaway played 14:33 in his return. The 30-year-old winger was listed on the second line Sunday, though his ice time was more in line with his usual bottom-six role. He'll provide a veteran presence up front for the Capitals while their forward depth remains tested due to the protocols. Hathaway has 10 points, 55 shots, 99 hits, 16 PIM and a plus-9 rating through 26 appearances this year.

  • Capitals' Garnet Hathaway: Good to go

    Hathaway has cleared the league's COVID-19 protocols and will play Sunday against the Kings, Samantha Pell of The Washington Post reports.

  • Capitals' Garnet Hathaway: Enters COVID-19 protocols

    Hathaway (COVID-19) has entered the COVID-19 protocols and will be unavailable for Monday's game against the Ducks, Samantha Pell of The Washington Post reports.

    Hathaway joins Nic Dowd and Trevor van Riemsdyk on the list of Washington players now unavailable due to COVID-19 protocols. The 30-year-old winger has been a valuable depth player for Washington with seven goals, nine points and 94 hits in 25 games and will need two negative tests before returning as early as Friday's showdown against arch-rival Pittsburgh.

  • Capitals' Garnet Hathaway: Scores both goals in win

    Hathaway scored twice on three shots, doled out six hits and went plus-2 in Wednesday's 2-0 win over the Kings.

    Hathaway knocked in a John Carlson pass with Jonathan Quick caught out of position to open the scoring at 16:30 of the third period. The 29-year-old Hathaway then added an empty-netter to seal the victory. He's on an unprecedented hot streak with five goals and an assist in his last four games, which accounts for all of his offense in 17 contests overall. The Maine native is a physical force -- he has 61 hits this year -- but he's not likely to keep up this surge of offense much longer.

  • Capitals' Garnet Hathaway: Another two-point effort

    Hathaway scored an even-strength goal and added a short-handed assist in Sunday's 6-1 win over the Penguins.

    Both points came in the first period as the Caps jumped out to a 2-0 lead that they wouldn't relinquish, and his tally ended up being the game-winner. Hathaway has never been a scoring threat in his career, but the 29-year-old suddenly has four points (three goals, one helper) in his last two games as he sees more ice time due to a number of injuries in the team's forward ranks. As those are his only points on the season, there's little reason to think he'll keep this pace up, or be worth a roster spot on a fantasy squad even in the short term.

  • Capitals' Garnet Hathaway: Lights lamp twice in win

    Hathaway scored two goals in Friday's 4-3 win over the Blue Jackets.

    He beat Joonas Korpisalo twice to begin the second period, giving the Caps a 3-1 lead at the time. Hathaway had zero points through 13 games to begin the season, however, and his last tallies came in a two-goal performance against the Bruins in the first round of last year's playoffs. The 29-year-old is currently seeing top-six minutes due to injuries to the likes of T.J. Oshie (lower body) and Anthony Mantha (shoulder), but as yet the ice time hasn't translated into consistent production -- not surprising for a player who's only reached double-digit goals once in his career (11 in 2018-19 for the Flames) and has never put together a 20-point campaign.

    He scored his first goal when Dmitry Orlov's point shot deflected off Hathaway's left leg and squared the game at 2-2 late in the first period. Hathaway put the Capitals on top 3-2 at 7:04 of the final frame, blasting a perfect 2-on-1 feed past Boston netminder Tuukka Rask. The goals were Hathaway's first in 15 career playoff games and marked his first two-goal performance since Dec. 2019. The 29-year-old tallied six times in 56 games during the regular season, adding 12 helpers.

  • Capitals' Garnet Hathaway: Two points against Rangers
