Kevin Hoffman-USA TODAY Sports

As per the Washington Post’s Issabelle Khurshdyan, John Carlson is going to be out three to four weeks.

John Carlson will be out of the lineup for a minimum of three to four weeks. Carlson “had a procedure today”.  Carlson will likely be placed on Long Term Injured Reserve (LTIR).

Carlson underwent the procedure on Saturday to fix what Trotz called a “nagging thing.” The exact nature of the injury was not specified.

Carlson had been struggling in his return from an injury he sustained earlier in the season. The move will also provide some salary cap relief for the Capitals.
