Capitals’ Practice News Roundup: Preparing For Battle


The Washington Capitals practiced at MedStar Capitals Iceplex on Tuesday in preparations for their matchup against the Vegas Golden Knights tomorrow night at Capital One Arena. Here is all of the news from the Capitals’ practice on Tuesday morning: 

Defenseman Michal Kempny skated in his regular spot next to John Carlson on the top pairing and he told reporters that he will make his season debut against the Golden Knights tomorrow. Kempny confirmed that he suffered a concussion from a hit delivered by St. Louis Blues’ defenseman Robert Bortuzzo in a preseason game on September 25.

Forward Dmitrij Jaskin, who was claimed off of waivers from the Blues last week, skated on the fourth line with center Nic Dowd and forward Devante Smith-Pelly and is expected to make his Capitals debut against Vegas.

Rumors of forward Axel Jonnson-Fjallby will remain with the Hershey Bears. The Capitals shut down previous reports that said that he will go back to his native of Sweden and there are no plans of him heading back anytime soon.
