Andre Burakovsky Continues Skating Saturday (Video)

After the Capitals wrapped up their morning skate, Andre Burakovsky came out to the ice for the second day in a row to do some individual skating, as he continues to recover from his upper-body injury that he suffered in Game 2 of the Caps first round series. Prior to the Capitals optional skate on Friday, he was out skating an hour before the session began. 

On Friday, Burakovsky skated around with a stick in his hand but didn’t do any puck handling.

On Saturday, Burakovsky came out for another conditioning skate with strength and conditioning coach Mark Nemish. In this latest “Camp Nemo” session Burakovsky continued to work on his speed. He skated around cones and even skated some suicides from the boards to the neutral zone and back.

Barry Trotz said that Burakovsky is still week-to-week. It is unlikely he will be back in the Capitals second round series with the Penguins but it’s a good sign to see him out there skating. If the Caps do their part and overcome this adversity, they could get him back down the road.
