The hits just keep coming for the Washington Capitals. Or in the case of the 2022-23 Capitals, it’s the injuries that just keep coming. Defenseman Martin Fehervary was the latest Capitals player to leave a game due to injury. Fehervary was ruled out for the remainder of Wednesday night’s Capitals-Ducks tilt in the third period.
INJURY UPDATE: Martin Fehervary sustained a lower body injury and will not return to tonight’s game.

The Capitals will have the day off on Thursday and next hit the ice on Friday for practice in Northern California. They next face the San Jose Sharks on Saturday.
For crying out loud!
“The Washington Capitals announced they have recalled AHL Hershey”
If I’m Rasmus Sandin, I’m scared to play for the Capitals
Ha! No doubt.
This team has to be tops in the NHL in man games lost right? I mean it’s been pretty ridiculous. Teams go through injury spells but it feels like this team has dealt with it all year. Which is why I think the inconsistency in our play has been an issue. Haven’t had the same line up for long stretches at all.
