Caps Re-Sign Latta To Two-Year Deal

News: The Capitals have re-signed Michael Latta to a two-year, $1.15 million contract.
Analysis: Michael Latta was tendered a qualifying offer, allowing the Caps to match any offer sheets he may have received from other teams during free agency. Acquired as part of the largely failed Martin Erat trade, Latta will be reunited with the Predators coaching staff that drafted him originally, and will be given every chance to make the Caps during training camp.

Caps Tender Qualifying Offer To Latta

News: Michael Latta was tendered a qualifying offer by the Capitals on Sunday, Alex Prewitt of The Washington Post reports.
Analysis: Michael Latta, a pending Restricted Free Agent, had four points in limited action at the NHL level last season, spending most of the campaign with the AHL's Hershey Bears. Having been drafted by the Predators, it is possible that the arrival of former Predators bench-boss Barry Trotz as the Caps' new head coach may mean a larger role for Latta this coming season. Stay tuned as training camp unfolds.

News: Michael Latta (lower body) was placed on injured reserve by the Capitals on Tuesday, Katie Carrera of the Washington Post reports.

Caps' Latta Practices Monday

News: Michael Latta (lower body) participated in practice Monday for the Capitals, Katie Carrera of the Washington Post reports.
Analysis: Michael Latta left Sunday's game against the Flyers with the lower-body injury and did not return. In a quick turnaround, he was able to practice already Monday. He still should be considered day-to-day, but it seems a realistic possibility that he'll be ready to play as soon as Tuesday against the Flyers.

Caps' Latta Leaves Sunday With Lower-Body Injury

News: Michael Latta left Sunday's game against the Flyers with a lower-body injury and will not return.
Analysis: The severity of the injury is not yet know, but it's poor timing for the 22-year-old Michael Latta, who was just recalled Sunday and figured to stay up with Brooks Laich (groin) hitting long-term IR.

Analysis: This move suggests Brooks Laich (groin) is still not ready to go, though he's yet to be officially ruled out. Michael Latta, 22, is expected to play Sunday in his 17th career NHL game, after notching four points (1G, 3A) in 16 games with the Capitals earlier this season.

Capitals Send Latta Back To AHL Hershey

News: Michael Latta has been sent back to AHL Hershey on Saturday, Katie Carrera of the Washington Post reports.
Analysis: Michael Latta was first called up at the end of October and played in 16 games for the Capitals this year. Unfortunately, he managed just one goal and three assists while receiving an average of just 7:52 of ice time per game. He should be back at some point, but he's going to need to enhance that scoring touch before he comes back.

News: Michael Latta scored his first goal of the season during the Capitals' 4-3 shootout win over the Red Wings on Friday.
Analysis: Michael Latta has spent this season back and forth between Washington and AHL Hershey, filling in every so often. He's played in 10 games and now finally has his first goal to go with the two assists he's recorded thus far. He'll likely head back down soon once the Caps get healthy again.

Caps Recall Latta

News: Michael Latta has been recalled from Hershey, according to Katie Carrera of the Washington Post.
Analysis: Michael Latta was sent down to Hershey last week after Alexander Urbom was claimed off waivers from the Devils. Latta is a depth option in Washington and does not have any defined fantasy value at this point.

Latta Dealt To Washington

News: Michael Latta has been traded to the Capitals from the Predators along with Martin Erat for Filip Forsberg, the Caps' website reports.
Analysis: Michael Latta's a big bruiser who's totaled 184 PIM for AHL Milwaukee this year, but he's also contributed 35 points in 67 games. He probably won't score a whole lot in the NHL, at least to start, but has Steve Ott-esque upside and is pretty close to being ready to contribute for the Caps.
