Washington Capitals forward Carl Hagelin has been added to the COVID protocol, the team announced Monday afternoon.
Hagelin joins defender Dmitry Orlov on the COVID list.
The Washington Capitals blew their shutout against the Minnesota Wild in the oddest way. And yet also in a way that felt so fitting.
Carl Hagelin scored an own goal from 152 feet away during a delayed penalty while Washington’s net was empty.
It’s the greatest shot of Hagelin’s career.
The Washington Capitals held their third straight day of practice on Thursday as they prepared to hit the road for two games in the Central Time Zone.
TJ Oshie and Nicklas Backstrom, who were previously missing due to non-COVID illnesses, and Dmitry Orlov, who missed Wednesday’s practice, were all on the ice, according to the Caps’ Mike Vogel.
Alex Ovechkin, Evgeny Kuznetsov, John Carlson, and Carl Hagelin all took maintenance days, per the team.
Washington Capitals forward Carl Hagelin is getting into the construction business in his hometown of Nykvarn, Sweden. Swedish newspaper Länstidningen is reporting that he’s in the process of building a padel center.
This might need some explanation.
News from the beat reporters: Washington Capitals forward Carl Hagelin is absent from Thursday’s practice due to illness.
The team is reportedly awaiting results on his COVID test.
Update 11:50 am: Hagelin tested negative for COVID so he will not have to miss any time. Goaltending coach Scott Murray missed practice and is in COVID protocol.
Carl Hagelin is used almost exclusively as a defensive forward. His fourth line, when healthy, gets an abnormal amount of defensive zone draws. Carl also plays a big role on the Caps’ penalty kill. That means when Carl isn’t shanking his rare good chances – like breakaways or one-timers – there aren’t many opportunities for the 33-year-old Swede to light the lamp.
But Monday, Carl’s luck* finally changed against the Anaheim Ducks. Promoted to the second line with Lars Eller and TJ Oshie, Hagelin broke his long goalless streak after being fed a sensational pass by the Tiger.
The Washington Capitals will play the Columbus Blue Jackets on Saturday night looking to break a two-game losing streak.
TJ Oshie and Conor Sheary are both possibilities to return to the lineup from their longterm injuries.
