Erskine (neck) isn't expected to play in the Caps' final two games of the season, Alex Prewitt of the Washington Post reports.Erskine skated on his own after Wednesday's morning session, but doesn't appear to be in line to take contact with the team before the regular season draws to a close. He didn't play a single game this season after undergoing neck surgery in October, but should be fully healthy for the start of the 2015-16 campaign. Erskine will become a free agent this summer.

Erskien (upper body) was placed on injured reserve Wednesday, Alex Prewitt of the Washington Post reports.The Capitals ruled Erskine out of the entirety of their three-game road trip to western Canada earlier this week, so the IR move will allow the team to add another defenseman from the minors for depth purposes, if they choose to do so. Erskine had been a healthy scratch for the Capitals in every game even before succumbing to the injury.

Erskine, who was placed on injured reserve earlier Wednesday, underwent surgery to repair a disk in his neck.The procedure will require Erskine to begin a rehab program within the next few weeks, suggesting that he's not close to returning to action anytime soon. He could be a candidate for long-term injured reserve if his recovery ends up stretching into the second half of the season.

Erskine has an upper-body injury and will not join the Capitals for their three-game road trip beginning Wednesday.Erskine has been a healthy scratch all season for the Capitals, so it seems likely that he sustained the injury at some point during a recent practice. Since he hasn't been playing regularly for the Capitals anyway, his unavailability for the road trip shouldn't have an impact on coach Barry Trotz's lineup decisions.

After dealing with a concussion earlier this month, Erskine has been a healthy scratch the last seven games, Katie Carrera of the Washington Post reports.The Capitals have gone with Jack Hillen in the lineup while Erskine has remained in the press box those last seven games, but the two defensemen could trade places in Saturday's game. Hillen looks unlikely to play Saturday after suffering an injury Tuesday night, creating an opening for Erskine to rejoin the lineup.

Erksine registered an assist on Washington's only goal in Friday's 2-1 loss to New Jersey, one game after being a healthy scratch.Erksine isn't going to produce much offensively, as Friday's assist was his second of an injury-riddled season. Look for him to see third-pairing minutes for the Caps when he is in the lineup.

Erskine was a healthy scratch for Tuesday's game against the Senators.With just one point (an assist) in 24 games and a munus-4 rating, Erskine hasn't provided much fantasy value when on the ice, though his 31 PIM, 41 hits and 44 blocked shots do help owners in formats that count those statistics. There's been no word yet on whether he'll be back in the lineup Friday against the Devils.
