Capitals' Pheonix Copley: Sent to AHL affiliate
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Copley was reassigned to AHL Hershey on Saturday.

Ilya Samsonov was promoted to Washington's taxi squad in a corresponding move, so Copley is likely in for an extended stay in the minors.

Capitals' Pheonix Copley: Back with taxi squad
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Copley was reassigned to Washington's taxi squad Saturday.

The Capitals already have three healthy netminders ahead of Copley on their depth chart, so don't expect him to see NHL action anytime soon.

Capitals' Pheonix Copley: Shipped down to minors
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Copley was demoted to AHL Hershey on Wednesday.

With Ilya Samsonov removed from the COVID-19 protocols, Copley found himself as an unnecessary piece up with the big club, as Craig Anderson figures to take on the taxi-squad role. At this point, the 29-year-old netminder should probably be considered fourth, at best, on the organizational depth chart and is unlikely to make an NHL appearance anytime soon.

Capitals' Pheonix Copley: Summoned to taxi squad
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Copley has been assigned to Washington's taxi squad.

Copley allowed two goals on 28 shots in his only start with AHL Hershey before being recalled to the taxi squad. The Alaska native is likely headed back to the minors once Ilya Samsonov (COVID-19) returns to action.

Capitals' Pheonix Copley: Assigned to AHL affiliate
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Copley was assigned to AHL Hershey on Thursday.

Copley's demotion suggests Ilya Samsonov (COVID-19) may be close to being cleared to return. The 29-year-old Alaska native will likely spend most, if not all of the 2020-21 campaign in the minors or on the taxi squad.

Capitals' Pheonix Copley: Joins taxi squad
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Copley has been assigned to Washington's taxi squad.

Copley is likely headed to AHL Hershey once that league resumes operations, but he will remain on the taxi squad in the short term. The 28-year-old recorded a 2.90 GAA and .905 save percentage behind a 16-7-3 record in 27 starts with the Capitals during the 2018-19 season.

Capitals' Pheonix Copley: Placed on waivers
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Copley was placed on waivers Monday, JJ Regan of NBC Sports Washington reports.

Copley moved up the depth chart after Henrik Lundqvist was sidelined with a heart ailment in December, but the signing of Craig Anderson to a PTO seems to have shut the door on the Alaskan's NHL chances for the upcoming campaign. Should he clear waivers, the 28-year-old will serve as the top netminder for AHL Hershey during the upcoming season after posting a 2.47 GAA and .905 save percentage behind a 17-8-6 record in 31 games with the Bears during the 2019-20 season.

Capitals' Pheonix Copley: Joins skating sessions
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Copley was on the ice with the Capitals as part of Phase 2 of the NHL's Return to Play, Tarik El-Bashir of The Athletic reports.

Copley will primarily serve as a practice goalie once the Capitals get back into game action, as it would take an injury to Braden Holtby or Ilya Samsonov in order for Copley to dress in a postseason contest.

Capitals' Pheonix Copley: Placed on waivers
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Copley was placed on waivers Wednesday, Isabelle Khurshudyan of The Washington Post reports.

The Capitals will be in a salary cap crunch once Evgeny Kuznetsov (suspension) returns to the lineup, so Copley's $1.1 million cap hit is a luxury they can't afford at the moment. Moreover, management is likely curious to give top prospect Ilya Samsonov some work at the NHL level given that starter Braden Holtby is a pending unrestricted free agent likely headed for a big payday. The 27-year-old Copley was a serviceable backup in 2018-19, posting a 2.90 GAA and .905 save percentage behind a 16-7-3 record in 27 starts, so it's certainly possible another team will take a flyer on him.

Capitals' Pheonix Copley: Set to start Monday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Copley will start in net for Monday's preseason game versus the Blackhawks, JJ Regan of NBC Sports Washington reports.

Coach Todd Reirden said Copley will play the entire game. The 27-year-old backstop is expected to improve on last year's marks of a .905 save percentage and 2.90 GAA, especially since it's decision time in Washington with Braden Holtby playing in the final year of his five-year, $30.5 million contract.

Capitals' Pheonix Copley: Gets no help against Isles
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Copley made 21 saves in a 3-0 loss to the Islanders on Saturday. He allowed two goals.

Copley has a strong record -- he's 16-7-3 in 24 starts. But his 2.94 GAA and .904 save percentage aren't encouraging. Copley's record is influenced by team play, but the Caps couldn't muster much Saturday.

Capitals' Pheonix Copley: In for regular-season finale
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Copley will command the crease in Saturday's home game against the Islanders, Tom Gulitti of NHL.com reports.

A particularly important nugget from Gulitti -- as relayed by head coach Todd Reirden -- is that Copley is going to play the full game. That's not always an apparent distinction for starting netminders at this time of year, and fantasy owners should consider exploiting the advantage in daily formats. Copley is 16-6-3 with a 2.94 GAA and .904 save percentage through 26 games; he'd previously only appeared in two contests over a pair of seasons with the Blues. The Capitals have already clinched the Metropolitan Division, while the Isles are only three points back.

Capitals' Pheonix Copley: Mauled by Panthers
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Copley turned aside 29 of 33 shots in Monday's 5-3 loss to the Panthers.

Florida's final goal came into an empty net. The Caps were asleep in all three zones for the first 40 minutes, sticking Copley with a 4-0 deficit heading into the third period, but he did hold down the fort while they staged a rally that eventually fell short. With the club nearly locked into the top spot in the Metropolitan Division -- it's three points up on the Islanders, with each team having two games left to play -- Copley could get one more start in order to snatch a bit of extra rest for Braden Holtby before the playoffs.

Capitals' Pheonix Copley: Defending cage Monday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Copley will patrol the crease versus the Panthers on the road Monday.

The Capitals can secure a Metropolitan Division title Monday. If they do, it could open the door for Copley to get the nod for one of the last two games of the year as well. In 25 appearances this year, the Alaska native has gone 16-5-3 with one shutout and a 2.88 GAA. Once the playoffs start, Copley will be a permanent fixture on the Caps bench, though he has proven capable of taking the reins should starter Braden Holtby suffer an injury.

Capitals' Pheonix Copley: Sharp in road victory
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Copley allowed one goal on 21 shots faced during Tuesday's 4-1 road win over the Devils.

Copley has been one of the league's most dependable backups in his first full season in the big leagues with a 2.88 GAA and .906 save percentage behind a 16-5-3 record in 25 starts. The 26-year-old is a solid spot-start whenever he's called upon between the pipes.

Capitals' Pheonix Copley: Divisional clash on tap
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Copley will start in goal Tuesday against host New Jersey, Isabelle Khurshudyan of The Washington Post reports.

The Devils have been decimated by injuries up front and plan to send a rookie -- albeit a talented one -- in MacKenzie Blackwood between the pipes as Copley's adversary. Copley is an intriguing streaming option in daily formats due in large part to the immense win potential. He's gone 15-5-3 with a 2.97 GAA and .904 save percentage through 24 games this season.

Capitals' Pheonix Copley: Grounds Jets for fifth straight win
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Copley stopped 33 of 34 shots in Sunday's 3-1 win over the Jets.

The Caps' backup netminder has now won five straight starts, a stretch that dates back to Feb. 7, but his 2.92 GAA and .908 save percentage over that streak indicate it owes as much to the Washington offense as it does Copley's own performances. With Braden Holtby playing well at the moment, Copley's opportunities should remain limited.

March 10, 2019 10:48 AM
Capitals' Pheonix Copley: Facing off against Jets
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Copley will tend the home twine in Sunday's game versus the Jets, Tom Gulitti of NHL.com reports.

Despite Braden Holtby riding a five-game winning streak, Copley will make his first start in two weeks. Copley has won four straight outings, but he was just scraping by with an ugly .891 save percentage and 3.38 GAA in that span. He'll have an intense test in this matchup, as the Jets rank fifth in the league at 3.43 goals per game.

February 25, 2019 01:20 AM
Capitals' Pheonix Copley: Hangs on for OT win
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Copley stopped 26 of 31 shots in Sunday's 6-5 overtime win over the Rangers.

The 27-year-old backstop extended his winning streak to four games with a lot of help from his teammates after Copley gave up the tying goal with only 31 seconds left on the clock in the third period. His 3.06 GAA and .901 save percentage are nothing special, but the Caps seem to be giving him plenty of goal support, making Copley a DFS target whenever Braden Holtby needs a breather.

February 24, 2019 12:12 PM
Capitals' Pheonix Copley: Pegged for Sunday's start
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Copley will patrol the home crease in Sunday's game versus the Rangers, JJ Regan of NBC Sports Washington reports.

He marked the win column in each of his last three starts but posted mediocre numbers with a .908 save percentage and 2.94 GAA in that stretch. The Rangers are currently in sell mode, as they've already moved Mats Zuccarello and they'll be sitting center Kevin Hayes for precautionary measure. Those two combined for 79 points, so their absence will make Copley's time in the blue paint easier.
