BREAKING: DEVASTATING News for the Washington Capitals season

Published October 31, 2022 at 2:58 PM

No team has been more affected by injuries to start this 2022-23 season than the Washington Capitals.

The team already started the season without future hall of fame center Nicklas Backstrom who had offseason hip surgery, and might be doubtful for the season.

They are also missing power forward Tom Wilson who also had offseason surgery to repair an injury he suffered in game 1 of the Stanley Cup finals against the Florida Panthers, and he isn't expected back until December.

During their shutout win to the Nashville Predators the other night, it wasn't all sunshine and rainbows after their victory as they lost both TJ Oshie and John Carlson during the first period and they did not return to the game.

The Washington Capitals made an announcement today and it's not good news.

TJ Oshie is now out indefinitely while John Carlson is day-to-day but is missing tonights game against the Carolina Hurricanes.

The team is also missing Connor Brown who they acquired to replace Tom Wilson to start the year. The team is now down their top 3 right wingers, their top center and top defenceman.

Capitals new lineup:

Alex Ovechkin — Dylan Strome — Conor Sheary
Marcus Johansson — Evgeny Kuznetsov — Connor McMichael
Aliaksei Protas — Lars Eller — Anthony Mantha
Beck Malenstyn — Nic Dowd — Garnet Hathaway

Dmitry Orlov — Trevor van Riemsdyk
Martin Fehervary — Nick Jensen
Erik Gustafsson — Matt Irwin
