  • Capitals' Evgeny Kuznetsov: Suffered shoulder injury in playoffs

    by RotoWire Staff | Special to CBSSports.com
    (6/13/18) Kuznetsov indicated that it was his shoulder that was injured in Game 2 of the Stanley Cup Finals and will not require surgery, Tarik El-Bashir of NBC Sports Washington reports.

    Kuznetsov received a heavy hit from Golden Knights defenseman Brayden McNabb and did not return for the remainder of that game. The 26-year-old center was no worse for wear from the incident, however, returning for Game 3 and leading the league in playoff scoring with 32 points in 24 games -- including points in 14 of his last 15 games. The talented Russian has emerged as a superstar in the NHL and is likely to be an early selection in all formats following a career-high 27 goals and 83 points in the 2017-18 regular season.

    Capitals' Evgeny Kuznetsov: Finishes with league-best 32 playoff points

    by RotoWire Staff | Special to CBSSports.com
    (6/8/18) Kuznetsov dished out a helper on his team's opening goal in Thursday's 4-3, Game 5 win over the Golden Knights. The victory clinched a 4-1 series win and the Stanley Cup for Washington.

    While Kuznetsov lost out to linemate Alex Ovechkin in the Conn Smythe Trophy race, he led all players this postseason with 32 points in 24 appearances. The 26-year-old Russian also topped a point-per-game pace during the regular season with 83 points in 79 contests, so he won't last long on draft boards heading into the 2018-19 campaign.

    Capitals' Evgeny Kuznetsov: Helps out on four

    by RotoWire Staff | Special to CBSSports.com
    (6/4/18) Kuznetsov put up four apples Monday, leading his team in scoring in a 6-2 win over Vegas in Game 4.

    What injury? Since leaving Game 2 with an upper body injury, Kuznetsov has scored six points and helped the Capitals' offense find an answer for Marc-Andre Fleury. After two great games on home ice, he's clearly at full strength and he'll try to keep this going when the series returns to Nevada on Thursday.

    Capitals' Evgeny Kuznetsov: Big performance despite injury

    by RotoWire Staff | Special to CBSSports.com
    (6/2/18) Kuznetsov (upper body) scored the game-winning goal and added an assist in Saturday's 3-1 win over the Golden Knights.

    So much for being impeded by what many thought was a busted wrist. Kuznetsov's presence on the ice makes everyone on the team better and that includes Alexander the Great. He leads the Caps with 27 points (12 goals, 15 assists) in 22 games this postseason. Watch for Kuznetsov to get Sunday off in preparation for Game 4 on Monday night.

    Capitals' Evgeny Kuznetsov: Will play Game 3

    by RotoWire Staff | Special to CBSSports.com
    (6/2/18) Kuznetsov (upper body) will suit up for Saturday's Game 3 showdown against Vegas, Isabelle Khurshudyan of The Washington Post reports.

    Kuznetsov was injured during Washington's Game 2 victory Wednesday. His presence will be huge for the Capitals as they host the Golden Knights in an attempt to take the 2-1 series lead. The 26-year-old has 11 goals and 25 points during this playoff run.
