  • Capitals' Alexander Alexeyev: Making season debut

    Alexeyev (shoulder) will be activated off injured reserve and make his season debut Wednesday against the Penguins, Samantha Pell of The Washington Post reports.

    Alexeyev will likely slot into a botom-pairing role after missing the first 14 games of the campaign while recovering from offseason shoulder surgery. The 22-year-old defender spent most of the 2021-22 season in the minors, picking up one goal and 19 points through 68 games with AHL Hershey.

    Alexeyev will be on hand as an injury-replacement option for the Capitals' playoff run.

  • Capitals' Alexander Alexeyev: Returning from overseas

    Alexeyev was re-assigned to AHL Hershey on Monday.

    Alexeyev has been summoned to the minors following the conclusion of his season with KHL Salavat Yulaev Ufa. The 31st overall selection from the 2018 NHL Entry Draft posted eight goals and 16 points in 55 games while riding out the pandemic in his native Russia and is expected to serve primarily as a depth option in the minor-league ranks for the balance of the 2020 season. The 21-year-old has intriguing long-term fantasy upside as his development continues, so those in dynasty formats should consider stashing him.

  • Capitals' Alexander Alexeyev: Not on training camp roster

    Alexeyev is not on the Capitals' training camp roster.

    Alexeyev, a first-round draft pick from 2018, was expected to compete for a roster spot this season. Instead, he'll remain with Salavat Yulaev Ufa of the KHL, where he has amassed four goals, five helpers and 65 blocked shots in 47 contests. The 21-year-old Russian would have had a tough time outplaying numerous veterans for a roster spot this season, but could challenge for at least a part-time role in 2021-22.

  • Capitals' Alexander Alexeyev: Suiting up for practice Monday

    Alexeyev (undisclosed) will take part in Monday's practice, Samantha Pell of The Washington Post reports.

  • Capitals' Alexander Alexeyev: Absent from practice again

    Alexeyev missed his second day of practice Tuesday, Mike Vogel of the Capitals' official site reports.

    Alexeyev was named to the training camp roster but has yet to get onto the ice for the club. Even once given the all-clear, the blueliner is a long shot to appear in any games during the postseason, which makes him a non-factor in fantasy contests.

  • Capitals' Alexander Alexeyev: Suiting up for Phase 3

    Alexeyev was added to the Phase 3 training camp roster Sunday.

    Alexeyev managed three goals and 21 points in 58 games during his inaugural pro season with AHL Hershey. The 20-year-old owns excellent NHL upside and could be a reliable defenseman for the Capitals as he continues to develop. The 31st overall selection from the 2018 NHL Entry Draft could see some playing time during Washington's playoff run, but he is not likely to see a regular role in the NHL for another season or two.

  • Capitals' Alexander Alexeyev: Cut from camp

    The Capitals assigned Alexeyev (concussion) to AHL Hershey on Wednesday.

The 2018 first-round pick, who racked up 10 goals and 43 points in 49 games with the Red Deer Rebels of the WHL last year, will likely spend the entirety of the 2019-20 campaign in the minors.
