The Washington Capitals have been incredibly busy over the past few days as it’s clear that general manager Brian MacLellan has opened up shop before the NHL’s March 3 deadline. Five pending unrestricted free agents on the Caps’ roster have been moved.
One of the few NHL players that have come back in return is defenseman Rasmus Sandin. Sandin joined his new team on the ice for their morning skate at Honda Center before they’re set to take on the Anaheim Ducks.

Sandin’s participation could indicate that he’s ready to jump into the lineup on Wednesday night. For that to happen though, a whole bunch of bureaucratic mess will need to be settled beforehand.
Sandin is here in Anaheim, but #Caps are working through getting his immigration/work visa details buttoned down, so he may or may not play tonight, as it stands right now.

The skate was optional so there was no indication of who Sandin could be paired with if he does indeed play his first career game with the Caps. So far this season, the slick Swede has gotten into 52 games for Toronto and recorded 20 points (4g, 16a).
Sandin will wear number 38 when he does officially don a Capitals sweater.
