Reports regarding Capitals defenseman Michal Kempny and his recovery from a concussion sustained in preseason have gradually improved over the last week.
As we mentioned in Saturday’s practice report, Capitals defenseman Michal Kempny returned to skating with the team on Saturday, but was practicing with a (light blue) non-contact Jersey. Kempny sustained a concussion in a preseason game against the St. Louis Blues on September 25 (here).
On Sunday, Kempny practiced in a normal (full contact) jersey, indicating Kempny is potentially close to returning to the lineup. On Tuesday Kempny confirmed his return to the lineup.
Michal Kempny confirms he will make his season debut tomorrow. #Caps D-man dealt with a concussion late in preseason, but has practiced the last several days.
