Caps' Orlov Practices

News: Dmitry Orlov (wrist) practiced with the team Monday, Alex Prewitt of the Washington Post reports.
Analysis: It's a good sign that Dmitry Orlov's rehab is back on track after he seemed to hit a snag last week. Keep an eye out for him to head to AHL Hershey for a conditioning assignment once he's cleared for contact.

Caps' Orlov Healing Slowly

News: Dmitry Orlov (wrist) is not healing as quickly as the Caps had hoped, The Washington Post reports.
Analysis: While Dmitry Orlov is making progress, he's been limited mostly to skating as a way of building up his endurance while he's unable to play. Once he's ready to increase his activity, Orlov is expected to go on a conditioning assignment with Hershey.

Caps' Orlov May Be Out Until November

News: Coach Barry Trotz suggested Friday that Dmitry Orlov (wrist) may not be able to return until the end of November, Alex Prewitt of the Washington Post reports.
Analysis: Since undergoing wrist surgery in May, Dmitry Orlov has failed to progress as quickly as the Capitals anticipated. Orlov was initially projected to be ready for Opening Night, but ultimately decided to stash him on long-term injured reserve after he failed to show much improvement. It sounds like the blueliner is still struggling to regain strength in the wrist one month later, and he's yet to take part in any practices with the team.

Caps' Orlov To Land On LTIR

News: Dmitry Orlov (wrist) will be placed on long-term injured reserve, Alex Prewitt of the Washington Post reports.
Analysis: The NHL's rules for long-term injured reserve dictate that Dmitry Orlov will be out for at least 10 games and 24 calendar days, which will prevent him from making his season debut until at least early November. Orlov was able to skate on his own Tuesday but remains stuck in the rehab process with his surgically-repaired wrist.

Capitals' Orlov Could Be Out Until November

News: Dmitry Orlov (wrist) may not be ready to play until November, Mike Vogel of the Capitals' website reports.
Analysis: The Capitals hoped Dmitry Orlov would be ready to play in early October, but it turns out his recovery is taking longer than expected. He figures to grab a spot on the Capitals' roster when he is ready to play, but it remains to be seen exactly when that will be.

Capitals' Orlov To Start Season On IR

News: Dmitry Orlov (wrist) will start the season on injured reserve, Alex Prewitt of The Washington Post reports.
Analysis: Dmitry Orlov has been skating on his own during training camp as he works his way back from a wrist injury sustained during the 2014 IIHF World Championships in Belarus while playing for the gold medal winning Team Russia. Once healthy, Orlov figures to be reunited with Mike Green, and although he should get some favorable matchups on a deep Capitals defense corps, he isn't likely to garner enough significant minutes to be an effective contributor from a fantasy perspective.

Caps' Orlov (Wrist) A Candidate For IR

News: Dmitry Orlov (broken wrist) could be a candidate for injured reserve to start the season, Alex Prewitt of the Washington Post reports.
Analysis: Dmitry Orlov has yet to practice with the Capitals during training camp, as he continues to recover from offseason surgery on his injured wrist. With the Capitals projecting a mid-October return for the defenseman, there's a chance he could open the season on the injured reserve list, which would require him to remain there for a minimum of seven days.

Caps Hopeful Orlov Will Return In October

News: Head coach Barry Trotz is hopeful Dmitry Orlov (wrist) will return to the lineup sometime in early-October, although he indicated there is an "open time frame" for the recovery, Alex Prewitt of The Washington Post reports.
Analysis: Dmitry Orlov (wrist) broke his wrist during Team Russia's gold medal-winning performance at the 2014 IIHF World Championships in Belarus this summer. Trotz indicated Orlov has resumed skating and is on track to return to the lineup fairly soon. However, with the arrival of Matt Niskanen and Brooks Orpik, Orlov appears destined for a decrease in the top-4 minutes he saw last season, so he faces an uphill battle to be a solid producer from a fantasy perspective.

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

News: Dmitry Orlov agreed to a two-year, $4 million extension Thursday.
Analysis: The 22-year-old has provided three goals, six assists and 19 penalty minutes over 38 games for the Capitals. He's logged consistent ice time since being recalled from the minors in November, and the two-year pact seemingly locks him into full-time duty for the foreseeable future.

Caps Orlov Completes Suspension

News: Dmitry Orlov has completed his two-game suspension and will be available for Saturday's game vs. the Coyotes.
Analysis: This is just an FYI more than anything for fantasy owners to get the defenseman back in the lineup Saturday. Dmitry Orlov's overall production (nine points in 36 games) has been modest this season, but he'll continue to see upwards of 20 minutes per night on the blue line.

Caps' Orlov Suspended Two Games

News: Dmitry Orlov has been suspended for two games by the NHL's department of player safety, Katie Carrera of the Washington Post reports.
Analysis: Dmitry Orlov checked Brayden Schenn from behind in the third period of Sunday's 5-4 overtime loss to the Flyers, and was assessed a major penalty on the play. He'll sit out the team's next two games, and will be eligible to return March 8 against the Coyotes.

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.

Capitals' Orlov Tallies Two Goals

News: Dmitry Orlov scored twice and picked up five penalty minutes against the Flyers on Sunday.
Analysis: This is Dmitry Orlov's first multi-goal game of his career. Of course, he also only has six goals in 101 games, so perhaps that isn't surprising.

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.
Analysis: Since cracking the Capitals' lineup at the end of November, Dmitry Orlov has been averaging almost 20 minutes per night in a top-four role, but he has shown he still has a lot to work on. Bottom line, despite playing healthy minutes, don't expect a lot of offensive production from the young blueliner anytime soon. He has just four points through 24 games thus far.

Capitals Recall Orlov From AHL Hershey on Saturday

News: Dmitry Orlov was recalled from AHL Hershey on Saturday, Katie Carrera of the Washington Post reports.
Analysis: Dmitry Orlov has been back and forth between Hershey and Washington three times in the last two weeks.

How long he stays or how much he plays this time is not yet known.
