  • Capitals' Nathan Walker: Returns to lineup Tuesday

    by RotoWire Staff | Special to CBSSports.com
    (10/17/17) Walker will be in the lineup Tuesday against the Maple Leafs, Tarik El-Bashir of NBC Sports Washington reports.

    The Aussie has been out of the lineup the last three games, but the Caps need a spark so the pesky winger will draw into an early-season showdown with the upstart Maple Leafs. With one goal to show in two contests, the 23-year-old has yet to carve out reliable fantasy value.

    Capitals' Nathan Walker: Notches first point of NHL career

    by RotoWire Staff | Special to CBSSports.com
    (10/8/17) Walker had a goal in Saturday's 6-1 rout over the Canadiens.

    The goal was almost icing on the cake as Walker became the first Australian player to ever dress for an NHL regular-season contest. Jumping out to an early 4-0 lead may have helped, but the 23-year-old forward had an impressive 11:23 of ice time in his first game -- as well as two shots and four hits. It's unclear how much ice time the third-round pick from the 2014 NHL Entry Draft will get in the early going, but if he can get consistent ice time and contribute offensively, he could carve out some legitimate fantasy value in deeper formats. Keep an eye on his production and ice time moving forward.

    Capitals' Nathan Walker: Set to make NHL debut Saturday

    by RotoWire Staff | Special to CBSSports.com
    (10/6/17) Walker is expected to be in the lineup Saturday against the Canadiens, Tarik El-Bashir of NBC Sports Washington reports.

    This would be the first time an Australian national has appeared in an NHL regular-season game, so there's plenty for Walker to celebrate. The Capitals' bottom six is in a state of flux and Walker's tenacious forechecking impressed the coaches during the preseason, so it's no surprise he will get a look in the early going. His speed and pesky nature could give him some value in deeper formats if he can become a mainstay in the lineup, so keep an eye on his ice time and production, but his fantasy value is still quite nebulous at the moment.

    Capitals' Nathan Walker: Pots shorthanded goal Monday

    by RotoWire Staff | Special to CBSSports.com
    (9/19/17) Walker scored a shorthanded goal in Monday's 4-1 preseason loss to the Devils.

    The Australian forward is being watched closely this preseason, as he's a candidate to fill an opening in the bottom six created by the offseason departure of Daniel Winnik. The 22-year-old winger will need more solid performances like this one to earn a spot on the Opening Night roster, but his fantasy upside remains limited even if he does break camp with the big club.

    Capitals' Nathan Walker: Re-signs with Washington

    by RotoWire Staff | Special to CBSSports.com
    (6/1/17) Walker signed a two-year, two-way contract with the Capitals on Thursday.

    Walker has been a solid contributor during his last two seasons with the Capitals' AHL affiliate, notching 64 points (28 goals, 36 assists) in 131 games over that span. The 2014 third-round pick should get an opportunity to compete for an Opening Night roster spot in next season's training camp, but his underwhelming production in the minors suggests it's unlikely he'll be making any meaningful impact at the NHL level in 2017-18.
