Brett Connolly Injury Update


There were two injuries during last night’s win over the Red Wings. Brett Connolly was one of the players who got injured. While he was able to complete the game, there was uncertainty as to whether or not he would be on the ice the next day. 

Connolly injured himself just prior to his goal in the first period. While going after the puck, he collided with Danny DeKeyser into the boards. He got back up, got a rebound and put the puck in to tie the game at 2.

The Caps held practice this morning at Kettler, and Connolly was able to participate, as reported by Isabelle Khurshudyan of the Washington Post.

Michael is an avid DC sports fan with a passion for writing. He has followed the Washington Capitals since the 2003-04 season, around the time his enthusiasm for DC teams really began. It was from the days when they had the worst record in the league to when they became the most exciting team in the area. His Dad took him to his first Caps game a couple of years later. One of his favorite memories was being in the stands during the 2015 Winter Classic where Troy Brouwer scored the game-winning goal with 12 seconds left. Michael graduated from Radford University in May 2016, earning a degree in journalism and focusing on sports journalism and broadcasting. His goal is to work in sports media in Washington, D.C.
