4 - Number of Caps rookies with 50+ games played: Jakub Vrana (60), Christian Djoos (56), Chandler Stephenson (53) and Madison Bowey (51).

No team in the NHL this season has more 50-game rooks (New Jersey and Boston also have four apiece), and the Caps’ quartet represents the most for the franchise since 1981-82 (Bobby Carpenter, Gaetan Duchesne, Bobby Gould, Chris Valentine, Greg Theberge and Torrie Robertson).
