Rookie defenseman Jonas Siegenthaler has scored the first goal of his NHL career.
It’s that time o’ the year again, boys and ghouls and babes: Caps Halloween is upon us. Instead of rating da boys on their Corsi and Fenwick or whatever, we will now rate them using the eye test. For their costumes.
After extensive research and focus group feedback, we have divided the costume criteria into three categories: Party Vibes, Arts And Crafts, and Unproblematicness.
The Washington Capitals went from being nearly completely healthy to needing to make two call-ups after one boneheaded play against the Toronto Maple Leafs.
Jonas Siegenthaler and Richard Panik both suffered upper-body injuries on Wednesday after the two players crashed into each other off a faceoff. Both players left the game during the third period and went down the tunnel immediately. The Capitals announced Friday that Panik has been placed on long-term injured reserve while Siegenthaler will be a game-time decision.
In response to those injuries, the Capitals recalled Hershey Bears skaters Martin Fehervary and Travis Boyd to Washington. It’s unclear if one or both will play against the New York Rangers tonight.
The Washington Capitals lost two of their depth players in the third period after an unfortunate collision in the defensive zone.

ARLINGTON, VA — The best day of the Washington Capitals season, in this author’s humble opinion, occurred Monday when Caps players participated in its annual dog calendar photoshoot. Partnering with Homeward Trails Animal Rescue, the boys spent the afternoon posing (and hugging and cuddling) with dogs up for adoption as well as their own pups from home. This year, the Capitals modeled in front of vintage cars or their own vehicles.
While the Homeward Trail dogs stole everyone’s heart (please return it soon please, I’m having trouble functioning), the day started out with an appearance by the Capitals new dog, Captain.
Captain posed in a vintage silver car and wore silly hats, loving the attention he got throughout.
Meanwhile, Capitals players John Carlson, Nic Dowd, TJ Oshie, Alex Ovechkin, Chandler Stephenson, Garnet Hathaway, and Nick Jensen all posed with their own dogs. Tom Wilson, Nicklas Backstrom, Lars Eller, Tyler Lewington, Jakub Vrana, Evgeny Kuznetsov, Dmitry Orlov, Michal Kempny, Radko Gudas, Carl Hagelin, Richard Panik, Jonas Siegenthaler, Brendan Leipsic, and Ilya Samsonov took their photos with dogs available for adoption through Homeward Trails.
Since the calendar began in 2014, the Caps have raised more than $250,000 for Homeward Trails. A limited number of calendars will be available for $20 beginning Nov. 27 when the Capitals host the Florida Panthers. The calendar will also be sold online and in the team stores at Capital One Arena and MedStar Capitals Iceplex. Details will be announced at a later date.
While the official photos won’t be seen until the release, we hope these adorable photos will tide you over until then.
After the Carolina Hurricanes throttled the Caps in Game Three, something had to change.
To that end, Todd Reirden has shuffled all of his lines and the bottom defensive pair to get the Caps back to their winning ways in Game Four.

The Washington Capitals have recalled defenseman Jonas Siegenthaler from AHL affiliate, the Hershey Bears.
The move comes following the Capitals’ re-assigned defenseman Tyler Lewington back to Hershey Monday morning. Lewington was initially called up to give the cap-strapped Capitals some defensive depth. The Capitals have only six defensemen on the available following a lower-body injury to Michal Kempny — who was spotted on crutches during the Capitals’ White House visit earlier on Monday — that will reportedly leave Kempny out of the lineup indefinitely.
The Capitals were not able to immediately call up Siegenthaler, who played 25 games with the team earlier in the 2018-19 season. With the team so close to the cap, they only had the space to recall Siegenthaler at 5pm ET on Sunday. The Capitals played the Flyers at 12:30 pm ET on Sunday, so Lewington’s move was likely for insurance until such a time that Siegenthaler could return to the roster.
Jonas Siegenthaler was sent back down to Hershey on Friday after a 25-game stint in Washington. He scored in his first game back with the Bears.
The Hershey Bears beat the Charlotte Checkers in a shootout 3-2, extending Hershey’s current winning streak to five games and their point streak to 11 (10-0-0-1).
Needing a spot on the active roster for a returning Christian Djoos, the Washington Capitals have re-assigned Jonas Siegenthaler to the Hershey Bears. This move comes on the same day Christian Djoos was recalled from his conditioning stint in Hershey.
Siegenthaler was the only player on the Capitals roster who is waiver-exempt.
