Caps' Orlov Sidelined Until Late-September

News: A team spokesman stated that Dmitry Orlov (wrist) is not expected to be cleared to return until "some point in September or October," Alex Prewitt of The Washington Post reports.
Analysis: Dmitry Orlov, who initially was reported to suffer a broken arm during Russia's gold-winning run at the 2014 IIHF World Championships in Belarus, underwent surgery on May 22nd to repair a broken wrist. The operating physician, renowned hand surgeon Dr. Charles Melone, specified a rehab period of about four months, which would cast Orlov's availability for the start of the season into doubt. After a rocky start to last season in which he was frustrated enough to seek a trade out of DC, Orlov eventually settled into a full-time role with the Caps and solidified himself as a top-four NHL defenseman going forward. While he still has upside in keeper leagues, the injury could have a significant impact on the front end of Orlov's 2014-15 season. You may want to move him down your draft list in single-season leagues until more promising news emerges.

Caps' Orlov Suffers Broken Arm At Worlds

News: Dmitry Orlov (arm) has suffered a broken arm playing for Team Russia at the IIHF World Championships in Belarus.
Analysis: Dmitry Orlov suffered the injury during Russia's 6-1 win over the United States on Monday. In three tournament games, Orlov notched an assist and a plus-3 rating. Recently signed to a two-year contact extension, Orlov has emerged as a reliable top-four defenseman for the Capitals this season despite a modest three goals and 11 points in 54 games. No timetable has been set for his recovery, but with training camp still four months off, Orlov seems likely to be ready for the 2014-15 NHL season.

Caps' Orlov To Play At World Championship

News: Dmitry Orlov will play for Team Russia in the 2014 IIHF World Championship in Belarus, Dmitry Chesnokov of Yahoo Sports reports.
Analysis: Dmitry Orlov will suit up for Team Russia after taking a significant step with the Capitals during the 2013-2014 season. After requesting a trade early in the season due to displeasure with lack of playing time and constant movement to and from the NHL and AHL ranks, the Capitals started playing Orlov more consistently, and the promising young Russian took great strides. Though he finished with only three goals and eight assists in 54 games, the 22-year-old Novokuznetsk native has emerged as a top-4 defenseman for the Capitals, logging a career-high 19:36 per game this season. Orlov will get a chance to hone is offensive skills in Belarus after posting point-per-game totals with Russia's Under-20 World Junior Championship teams. With Mike Green's future in Washington uncertain, there may be an opportunity for Orlov to claim an even larger role heading into next season as the team looks for another blue liner to share the load with workhorse John Carlson. Orlov will be worth keeping an eye on in the later rounds of next season's fantasy drafts.

Capitals Re-Sign Orlov To Two-Year Extension

Capitals' Orlov Faces Possible Suspension

News: Dmitry Orlov will have a phone hearing with the NHL's Department of Player Safety Monday afternoon, Katie Carrera of The Washington Post reports.
Analysis: Dmitry Orlov was enjoying a breakout game, having notched the first multi-goal outing of his NHL career when he boarded Flyers center Brayden Schenn into one of the corners during the third period of Sunday's 5-4 OT loss. Schenn had difficulty getting off the ice, but would ultimately return to finish the game. Orlov was assessed a 5 minute-major for the incident, but it will be up to Brendan Shanahan if Orlov is worthy of any supplementary discipline. Orlov has three goals and nine points in 36 games with the Capitals this season.

Caps' Orlov Seeing Big Minutes

News: Dmitry Orlov is being encouraged by coach Adam Oates to work on his defensive play, the Washington Post reports.
