Top Joe Snively News

  • Capitals' Joe Snively: Recalled from conditioning stint

    Snively (wrist) was recalled from AHL Hershey prior to Friday's Game 6 against the Panthers, per Tom Gulitti of NHL.com

    Snively hasn't played in an NHL game since Feb. 28 due to a wrist injury. Prior to that, the 26-year-old winger logged four goals and three assists in a bottom-six role. Snively is likely to serve as a depth option for the Capitals moving forward.

  • Capitals' Joe Snively: Headed down for conditioning stint

    Snively (wrist) was sent to AHL Hershey on a long-term conditioning assignment Wednesday.

    At this point, Snively probably shouldn't be expected to play any more games at the NHL level. It was a strong start to the 26-year-o,d winger's NHL career, as he managed four goals and three helpers in 12 appearances for the Caps. If he can stay healthy, Snively could be in the mix for a spot on the 23-man roster heading into the 2022-23 campaign.

  • Capitals' Joe Snively: Re-ups with team

    Snively (wrist) agreed to terms on a two-year, $1.6 million deal with Washington on Wednesday.

    Snively has been dealing with a wrist injury that is expected to sideline him until mid-April. Despite the injury, the 26-year-old winger appears to have shown team brass enough to warrant a new contract that will see him likely transition to a full-time NHL roster spot next year.

  • Capitals' Joe Snively: Shifted to LTIR

    Snively (wrist) was moved to long-term injured reserve Tuesday, per CapFriendly.

    Snively was already expected to be out of action until mid-April at the earliest, so the change in status won't impact when he can be activated to play. With Lars Eller (COVID-19 protocols) also unavailable, Washington needed the extra cap space to bring Mike Vecchione up from the minors. Prior to getting hurt, Snively was rolling with four goals and three assists in 12 games and was certainly making his case for a full-time NHL roster spot heading into the 2022-23 campaign.

  • Capitals' Joe Snively: Undergoes wrist surgery

    Snively had surgery on his injured wrist Sunday and will be sidelined for 4-to-6 weeks.

    Snively has missed the last two games while dealing with a wrist injury. He has averaged 12:32 of ice time and lit the lamp twice over his last five appearances. The 26-year-old initial timeline for recovery has him returning sometime in April.

  • Capitals' Joe Snively: Considered week-to-week

    Snively (upper body) is considered "week-to-week" with an upper-body injury, Tarik El-Bashir of The Athletic reports.

    Snively has been dealing with the injury in recent days and is now expected to be out for the foreseeable future. The 26-year-old got his NHL career off to a hot start with four goals and seven points in 12 games prior to the injury, and with Anthony Mantha (shoulder) nearing a return, it's not clear if there will be an NHL role available to Snively once he heals up.

  • Capitals' Joe Snively: Designated for IR

    Snively (upper body) was placed on injured reserve Thursday, Tom Gulitti of NHL.com reports.

    Snively has averaged 11:33 of ice time and generated seven points over 12 appearances this season. Anthony Mantha (shoulder) was activated off injured reserve in a corresponding move the same day, it is unclear whether Snively will retain his roster spot upon return from his upper-body injury.

  • Capitals' Joe Snively: Not practicing Tuesday

    Snively did not participate in Tuesday's practice due to an upper-body injury, Tarik El-Bashir of The Athletic reports.

    Snively has averaged 11:33 of ice time and registered seven points over 12 games this season. His last point was recorded as a goal in a 5-3 victory over Philadelphia on Feb. 17. Snively will hope to participate in the game against Carolina on Thursday and the tilt versus Seattle on Saturday.

  • Capitals' Joe Snively: Seizes opportunity in Montreal

    Snively scored two goals and added an assist in Thursday's 5-2 win over the Canadiens.

    Skating in his sixth NHL game, Snively capitalized on an opportunity to face AHL-level goaltending in Montreal. He opened the scoring 5:04 into the first period, then gave Washington a 4-1 lead 5:18 into the second, chasing Canadiens goalie Cayden Primeau with the 11th goal Primeau has allowed in his last two starts. Snively capped the career night with an assist on Tom Wilson's empty-netter late in the third. He skated on Evgeny Kuznetsov's line with Alex Ovechkin unable to travel to Canada due to COVID-19 protocols, and Snively's five points in six games could earn the 26-year-old Virginia native a spot in the lineup even once Ovechkin returns.

  • Capitals' Joe Snively: Puts up helper

    Snively notched an assist and went plus-2 in Friday's 5-0 win over the Stars.

    Snively's been effective in the rare instances he's played -- he has one assist in each of his two games. He helped out on a Trevor van Riemsdyk tally in the first period Friday. The 26-year-old Snively is no lock to stay on the active roster going forward, so he can expect a challenge from Alexei Protas and Brett Leason for playing time.

  • Capitals' Joe Snively: Recalled, will play Friday

    The Capitals recalled Snively from the taxi squad to play Friday in Dallas, Samantha Pell of The Washington Post reports.

    Snively's only career NHL game came Dec. 19, when he had an assist and two shots on goal versus the Kings. The winger figures to skate on Washington's fourth line, although the team hasn't yet revealed its lineup for the road contest.

  • Capitals' Joe Snively: Elevated to taxi squad

    Snively was promoted from AHL Hershey to Washington's taxi squad Thursday.

    Snively will presumably be on hand as an emergency option for Friday's matchup with Dallas. The 26-year-old forward picked up an assist and two shots on goal in 6:53 of ice time in his NHL debut Dec. 19 versus the Kings.

  • Capitals' Joe Snively: Reassigned to AHL

    Snively was reassigned to AHL Hershey on Tuesday.

    Snively made his NHL debut Sunday, recording an assist in 6:53 of ice time against visiting Los Angeles. For now, he'll return to the Bears looking to build upon his impressive 22 points in 21 games this season.

  • Capitals' Joe Snively: Draws assist in NHL debut

    Snively earned an assist and fired two shots on goal in Sunday's 3-2 loss to the Kings.

    In a storybook moment, the Virginia native set up Connor McMichael for the opening goal at 7:58 of the first period. The only thing that could have made Snively's NHL debut better would have been a Capitals win. The 25-year-old has been effective with 22 points in 21 contests for AHL Hershey, but he's unlikely to see more than a bottom-six role with the Capitals.

  • Capitals' Joe Snively: Called up

    Snively was summoned to the Capitals on Sunday, Tarik El-Bashir of The Athletic reports.

    Growing up nearby in Herndon, Virginia, Snively could conceivably make his NHL debut Sunday for his hometown team given that T.J. Oshie (COVID-19) has entered pandemic protocols and will not be eligible to play against the Kings. The 25-year-old currently leads AHL Hershey with eight goals and 22 points in 21 games.

    Snively signed a one-year, two-way contract extension with the Capitals on Thursday.

    Snively spent the the 2020-21 campaign with AHL Hershey, picking up 17 points through 30 games. The 25-year-old forward will likely spend the entirety of the 2021-22 season in the minors.

  • Capitals' Joe Snively: Headed to Hershey

    Snively was released from the Capitals' training camp roster and assigned to AHL Hershey on Monday.

    Snively is waiver exempt and therefore among the first round of roster cuts for the Capitals. The Virginia native posted 12 goals and 24 points in 45 games with AHL Hershey during the 2019-20 season and is expected to remain in the minors for the balance of the upcoming campaign.
