Connor McMichael replaces Alex Ovechkin on Capitals top line, Martin Fehervary skating on top defense pairing
The Washington Capitals may turn to Connor McMichael with Alex Ovechkin day-to-day with a lower-body injury and now possibly questionable for the start of the season.
McMichael slotted in as the Capitals top line left wing at practice Sunday and skated with Evgeny Kuznetsov and Tom Wilson.
Martin Fehervary also looks to not only have made the team but will start the season skating next to John Carlson on the Capitals top defense pairing.
The Caps open the season in only three days against the New York Rangers.
