Bottom six forwards Nic Dowd and Carl Hagelin will miss Friday night’s game against the Montreal Canadiens. Both forwards have upper-body injuries.
Hagelin practiced in a light blue no-contact jersey during the morning skate while Dowd did not at all. The injuries leave the Capitals with only 17 healthy skaters on their roster currently, necessitating a callup later today.
“There’ll be a recall made from Hershey for a player tonight. We’re going to meet and make that decision here in the next little while,” Todd Reirden said.
