Brooks Laich: (Upper Body) May Return Saturday

by Oct 30, 3:43 PM

Coach Barry Trotz said Laich (upper body) could possibly play Saturday against the Lightning, Alex Prewitt of the Washington Post reports.


The Capitals planned to place Laich on injured reserve last week, but ended up reversing course and keeping him on the roster as a scratch for each of the last four games. He's been doing some activity on his own in preparation for a return, but if he's unable to fully practice Friday, it would seem likely that the Capitals rule him out for a fifth straight contest.
