Capitals' Schmidt (Shoulder) Nearing Return

News: Nate Schmidt (shoulder) said his fracture has completely healed, but he still needs to strengthen the surrounding muscles, Alex Prewitt of the Washington Post reports.
Analysis: Nate Schmidt was playing in the AHL when he suffered the injury, and that may be where he'll play once he's ready for games. He does have 33 NHL appearances this season, so it wouldn't be surprising to see him back with the big club at some point.

Caps' Schmidt Out 6-8 Weeks

News: Nate Schmidt will be out 6-8 weeks with a scapular fracture.
Analysis: Nate Schmidt -- who recorded three assists in 33 games while with the Caps -- suffered the injury while playing for AHL Hershey, where he had notched three points in two games.

Capitals Reassign Schmidt

News: Nate Schmidt was reassigned to AHL Hershey on Saturday.
Analysis: The 23-year-old had become a more frequent healthy scratch of late for the Capitals, so the motivation to demote him likely stems from the organizational brass' desire to get him more ice time. Steven Oleksy was recalled from Hershey in a corresponding move and is likely to fill the seventh defenseman role that had previously gone to Nate Schmidt.

Caps' Schmidt Tallies Assist In Saturday's Win

News: Nate Schmidt had an assist in a 4-2 win over Tampa Bay on Saturday.
Analysis: The assist was Nate Schmidt's third point of the season, and although he's been a solid player under new head coach Barry Trotz, his fantasy value remains hindered by his place on the depth chart and lack of playing time (just over 14 minutes per game). Even in deeper leagues, he's a reach from a fantasy perspective.

Caps' Schmidt Gets In Full Practice

News: Nate Schmidt (head) skated without a non-contact jersey at Thursday's practice, Alex Prewitt of the Washington Post reports.
Analysis: With Nate Schmidt no longer facing any limitations after taking a hit to the chin last Sunday, he'll attempt to make a final push for a roster spot. Though he won't play in Thursday's preseason tilt, he's expected to be ready to play in Sunday's exhibition finale against the Hurricanes.

Caps' Schmidt Recovering From Head Injury

News: Nate Schmidt (head) is hoping to return to practice Wednesday, Alex Prewitt of the Washington Post reports.
Analysis: Nate Schmidt passed all concussion tests after he was laid out by the Habs' Jarred Tinordi in Sunday's preseason contest, and it appears the Capitals are simply proceeding carefully with the blueliner. Even if he's able to take full contact Wednesday, Schmidt is far from a safe bet to secure an Opening Night roster spot.
