Sheary, Kuznetsov Miss Washington’s Practice In Anaheim On Tuesday

Left-wing Conor Sheary, who returned to the Washington area for the birth of his second child, and center Evgeny Kuznetsov, who is dealing with a non-COVID-19-related illness, missed the Washington Capitals’ practice at Honda Center on Tuesday.

Sheary is expected to join the team prior to Washington’s game against the Anaheim Ducks on Wednesday (10 PM ET, NBC Sports Washington in-market, ESPN+ out-of-market).

Sheary has drawn interest leading up to the NHL Trade Deadline at 3 PM ET on Friday. The 30-year-old, who has 12 goals and 30 points in 62 games this season, can become an unrestricted free agent on July 1 and carries just a $1.5 million cap hit.

Washington enters Tuesday in 12th place in the Eastern Conference but just three points back of a wild-card spot, though every team separating them from the second wild-card position has at least one game in hand on them.

Kuznetsov, 30, leads Washington with 39 assists and ranks second with 50 points in 61 games. More about his status will likely be released on Wednesday.
