Jay Beagle Continues Recovery from Upper-Body Injury (Update)


Jay Beagle missed the final three regular season games after leaving the first period in the Capitals win over the Penguins back on April 1. He was diagnosed with an upper-body injury. Having already clinched the Metropolitan Division, Barry Trotz felt no need to rush Beagle back into the lineup. He didn’t practice for the rest of the week but told the Sports Junkies that he would be ready to go on Monday. 

Monday’s skate was an optional and while Beagle didn’t join his teammates who chose to partake in it, he did do some individual skating after the skate. Beagle didn’t skate with his teammates during Tuesday’s full squad practice either but continued individual skating over on the Arlington rink while the rest of the team was putting in work on the Capitals rink.

After skating around and chatting with assistant coach Todd Reirden, Beagle began skating harder and faster, focusing on his footwork.

Just listen to the sound of those skates on the ice.

After practice, Trotz told the media that Beagle is still day-to-day. Even so, it looks like Beagle’s return is getting closer. Game 1 isn’t until Thursday night so we’ll see what Beagle does during tomorrow’s practice.
