  • Capitals' Rasmus Sandin: Injury isn't serious

    Sandin's leg injury isn't believed to be serious, Capitals general manager Brian MacLellan told Tom Gulitti of on Thursday.

    Sandin was hurt when he absorbed a knee-on-knee hit from Team USA's Mikey Eyssimont on May 23 during an IIHF World Championship game. It sounds like Sandin should be fine for training camp in September. He had seven goals and 35 points in 71 outings split between Toronto and Washington in 2022-23.

    Sandin scored a goal on three shots in Thursday's 5-4 loss to the Devils.

    Sandin extended Washington's lead to 2-0 early in the first period, working his way into the slot before beating Mackenzie Blackwood with a one-timer.

The 23-year-old Sandin finishes the year with 35 points (seven goals, 28 assists), with 15 coming in 19 games with Washington following a deadline trade from Toronto.

  • Capitals' Rasmus Sandin: Factors in on both goals in loss

    Sandin scored a goal, dished an assist, doled out three hits and added two PIM in Monday's 4-2 loss to the Kings.

    Sandin is thriving since he was thrust into a first-pairing role with the Capitals -- he has a goal and four helpers through two contests with his new team. The 22-year-old defenseman is up to 25 points, 59 shots on net, 119 hits, 60 blocked shots, 25 PIM and a plus-11 rating through 54 outings this season.
