Beck Malenstyn Out 6-8 Months After Undergoing Achilles Tendon Surgery

The Washington Capitals announced on Saturday that Capitals forward prospect Beck Malenstyn will miss six-to-eight months after undergoing surgery to repair an Achilles tendon. He sustained the injury while training in Vancouver.

The 22-year-old posted seven goals, 15 points, and a +5 rating in 46 games with the AHL club and just a -1 rating in three NHL games last season.

Malenstyn was a candidate to serve as the Capitals’ 13th forward before he suffered the injury.

The 2020-21 NHL season could begin sometime in January while it is unclear when the AHL season will start.
