The Washington Capitals announced on Friday that they have placed forward Richard Panik (upper-body) on long-term injured reserve and defenseman Jonas Seigenthaler will skate prior to their game against the New York Rangers and will be a game-time decision.

The two left the Capitals’ 4-3 victory against the Toronto Maple Leafs on Wednesday at the end of the second period after colliding with one another. Neither returned to the game and were reevaluated yesterday.

The move to place Richard Panik on LTIR this morning resulted in an ACSL capture of $81,333,206, and gave the club $2,750,000 in cap space.

Defenseman Michal Kempny, who has not played since March 20 and underwent hamstring surgery on April 2, could play against the Rangers.

The Capitals recalled center Travis Boyd and defenseman Martin Fehervary from the AHL’s Hershey Bears prior to Friday’s game.
