Capitals' Alexei Protas: Sent to AHL affiliate
Protas was reassigned to AHL Hershey on Friday.
Although Protas will head to the minors for now, it wouldn't be surprising to see him back with the big club ahead of Sunday's matchup with the Senators. He's picked up nine points while averaging 11:50 of ice time through 33 top-level appearances this year.... See More ... See Less
Capitals' Alexei Protas: Logs assist Friday
Protas notched an assist in Friday's 5-1 loss to the Blues.
Protas set up Daniel Sprong's first-period tally in the lopsided loss. The 21-year-old Protas has contributed modest offense this season with seven points, 25 shots on net and a plus-4 rating in 23 contests.

The 20-year-old has added 23 shots on net, a plus-2 rating and 10 hits while playing mostly in a bottom-six role, though he could see more time while Nicklas Backstrom and Evgeny Kuznetsov are in the NHL's COVID-19 protocols....

Capitals' Alexei Protas: Tallies first marker
Protas recorded a goal and added four shots during Sunday's 4-2 victory over the Hurricanes.
The goal is the first of Protas' young NHL career, as the 20-year-old forward has posted a goal and four points in 11 games since his recall. Protas is worth starting across the spectrum of fantasy formats as long as he's logging minutes alongside the likes of Alex Ovechkin and Evgeny Kuznetsov on the top line and on the power play....

Capitals' Alexei Protas: Promoted to top line
Protas will play alongside Alex Ovechkin and Evgeny Kuznetsov in Wednesday's game against the Canadiens, Samantha Pell of The Washington Post reports.
Protas will have an increased even-strength role with Conor Sheary (lower body) and T.J. Oshie (lower body) ruled out for Wednesday's game.
