Top Beck Malenstyn News

  • Capitals' Beck Malenstyn: Undergoes finger surgery

    Malenstyn has undergone a surgical procedure to stabalize a finger fracture on his left hand and is expected to be sidelined for 6-8 weeks.

    Malenstyn's lengthy absence will test the Capitals' bottom-six depth to an extent, but it almost certainly won't make waves in fantasy circles, as he's only picked up three points in 17 top-level appearances over the past two campaigns. Another update on the 2016 fifth-round pick should surface once he's activated off injured reserve.

  • Capitals' Beck Malenstyn: On injured reserve list

    Malenstyn (upper body) was put on the injured reserve list Wednesday, Tom Gulitti of NHL.com reports.

    Malenstyn left Tuesday's 3-2 overtime loss to Vegas after blocking a shot in the first period. Washington called up forwards Garrett Pilon and Sonny Milano on Wednesday to help deal with the Capitals' rash of injuries. Once Malenstyn is healthy, he might be put onto the fourth line.

  • Capitals' Beck Malenstyn: Leaves with injury

    Malenstyn (upper body) won't return to Tuesday's game versus the Golden Knights.

    Malenstyn was hurt on a blocked shot in the first period. It initially appeared to hit him lower on the body, but the Capitals' official injury designation suggests a different reason for his exit. He joins a growing list of injured Capitals forwards. If he can't play Thursday versus the Red Wings, Connor McMichael would likely draw into the lineup.

  • Capitals' Beck Malenstyn: Nets first goal

    Malenstyn scored a goal and added three hits in Saturday's 3-0 win over the Predators.

    Malenstyn broke a deadlock in the second, converting on a setup from Nic Dowd. This was Malenstyn's first goal and second point through three contests this season as he continues to fill in on the fourth line. The 24-year-old forward has added 11 hits, four shots on net, two PIM and a plus-2 rating. With T.J. Oshie (lower body) leaving Saturday's contest early, Malenstyn may have some more job security should Oshie miss additional time.

  • Capitals' Beck Malenstyn: Bags apple Monday

    Malenstyn tallied an assist, two PIM and six hits during Monday's 6-3 win over the Devils.

    Malenstyn was recalled from AHL Hershey following the injury to Connor Brown (lower body) and did not disappoint in his season debut with the Capitals. The 145th overall pick from the 2016 NHL Entry Draft is competing with the likes of Connor McMichael and Joe Snively for playing time and is unlikely to garner enough of a workload to merit much fantasy consideration.

  • Capitals' Beck Malenstyn: Summoned from minors

    Malenstyn was recalled from AHL Hershey on Wednesday.

    Malenstyn provides some additional depth for Thursday's game against Ottawa given that Evgeny Kuznetsov (suspension) will be ineligible to play and Connor Brown (lower body) isn't certain to be available. The 24-year-old Malenstyn has one goal in 15 career NHL appearances.

  • Capitals' Beck Malenstyn: Waived Sunday

    Washington waived Malenstyn on Sunday, CapFriendly reports.

    Malenstyn scored a goal in 12 NHL games and tallied 16 points in 65 appearances with AHL Hershey during the 2021-22 campaign. He signed a two-way deal this offseason and will begin the year at the AHL level.

  • Capitals' Beck Malenstyn: Grabs two-year deal

    Malenstyn signed a two-year, $1.525 million deal with Washington on Monday.

    Malenstyn's deal starts off as a two-way contract in year one before converting to a one-way, so fantasy players should anticipate him splitting the upcoming 2022-23 campaign between the NHL and AHL. In limited action for the Caps this year, the 24-year-old center garnered one goal on 10 shots, 34 hits and nine PIM while averaging just 9:03 of ice time. Even if he does see more games next year, it will likely continue to be in a bottom-six role.

  • Capitals' Beck Malenstyn: Back to minors

    Malenstyn was sent down to AHL Hershey on Monday.

    Malenstyn joins Brett Leason on the ride back to AHL Hershey. The 23-year-old has posted a goal and dished out 34 hits in 12 games with the Capitals this season.

  • Capitals' Beck Malenstyn: Back in DC

    Malenstyn was recalled by Washington on Wednesday, Samantha Pell of The Washington Post reports.

    Malenstyn provides some needed insurance in case T.J. Oshie (lower body) is unable to go for Wednesday's home game against the Canadiens. The 23-year-old has posted a goal and three points in 15 games with AHL Hershey this season.

  • Capitals' Beck Malenstyn: Sent to AHL affiliate

    Malenstyn was assigned to AHL Hershey on Thursday.

    Malenstyn was sent down to make room for Dennis Cholowski, who the Capitals claimed off waivers Thursday, on the active roster. Malenstyn could be in for an extended stay in the minors.

  • Capitals' Beck Malenstyn: Summoned to Captials

    Malenstyn was promoted from AHL Hershey to the Capitals on Tuesday, Tarik El-Bashir of The Athletic reports.

    With Nicklas Backstrom (hip) now on the long-term injured list, Washington has sufficient cap space to recall Malenstyn to the NHL. The 23-year-old has not played an NHL game in almost two years after missing all of last season with an Achilles injury. The 145th overall pick from the 2016 NHL Entry Draft should be a useful role player for the Capitals but has negligible fantasy value until he can secure regular ice time.

  • Capitals' Beck Malenstyn: Dropped to minors

    Malenstyn was demoted to AHL Hershey on Monday.

    Malenstyn missed all of last season with an Achilles injury but returned to the ice this preseason. He's been held scoreless in three career NHL games and scored 15 points in 46 appearances with AHL Hershey during the 2019-20 campaign.

  • Capitals' Beck Malenstyn: Returns to action

    Malenstyn (Achilles) registered seven hits and two blocked shots in Sunday's 3-2 shootout loss to the Bruins.

    The preseason action was Malenstyn's first since the 2019-20 season after missing all of the previous campaign recovering from a significant Achilles injury. The 23-year-old could get a glimpse of the big leagues in 2021-22 but is likely to spend the balance of the upcoming season with AHL Hershey.

  • Capitals' Beck Malenstyn: Re-signs with Washington

    Malenstyn (Achilles) signed a one-year, two-way contract extension with the Capitals on Thursday.

    Malenstyn missed the entirety of the 2020-21 campaign after undergoing surgery in early December to repair his Achilles tendon, but he should be ready for next season's training camp. The 2016 fifth-round pick spent most of 2019-20 in the minors, picking up seven goals and 15 points in 46 appearances with AHL Hershey, but he also drew into three games with the Capitals, going scoreless while posting a minus-1 rating over that span.

  • Capitals' Beck Malenstyn: Undergoes Achilles surgery

    Malenstyn underwent successful surgery to repair his Achilles tendon Saturday.

    While the nature of Malenstyn's injury wasn't revealed, he likely suffered a torn Achilles. The 22-year-old will require a 6-to-8 month recovery timeline. It's unclear if he'll be ready at any point during the upcoming season, which doesn't currently have a set start date. Malenstyn was a candidate to make the NHL roster this season after posting 15 points over 46 games in AHL Hershey last year.

  • Capitals' Beck Malenstyn: Added for postseason

    Malenstyn has been added to the Phase 3 training camp roster.

    Malenstyn registered seven goals and 15 points in 46 games with AHL Hershey during the 2019-20 regular season. The fifth-round pick from the 2016 NHL Entry Draft is expected to be a depth option for the duration of Washington's postseason run.

  • Capitals' Beck Malenstyn: Sent to minors

    The Capitals reassigned Malenstyn to AHL Hershey on Sunday.

    Malenstyn was a call-up in mid-November, when a slew of injuries hit the Capitals forward group. With Carl Hagelin's (upper body) likely activation from injured reserve coming soon, and Nicklas Backstrom (upper body) nearing a return, Malenstyn's demotion was needed to clear space on the roster. The 21-year-old played three games with the big club and went pointless in that span.

  • Capitals' Beck Malenstyn: Earns first NHL call-up

    The Capitalsl recalled Malenstyn from AHL Hershey on Wednesday.

    Nic Dowd and Carl Hagelin are both expected to be sidelined long-term with upper-body injuries, so Malenstyn could be in for an extended stay with the big club. The 21-year-old winger has notched six points in 18 appearances with Hershey this season.
