  • The NHL has handed down a three-game suspension to Evgeny Kuznetsov for “inappropriate behavior”. [Rink, NHL, USA Today, PHT, ESPN, Sporting News, AP, NBCSW, WashTimes, NoVa Caps]
  • Like the IIHF ban incurred earlier this summer, Kuznetsov is accepting his punishment without appeal and is focused on earning back the trust of fans and his team. [NHL, WaPo]
  • Now is the time for all of us to show Kuznetsov our support, not scorn. Damn right. [WaPo]
  • If you want to find a silver lining in something like this, Kuznetsov’s salary will not count against the salary cap while he’s on the sidelines. [NBCSW]
  • Get the lowdown on some of the new faces taking center stage at camp with a report from Day 1 of camp. [Rink]
  • Hear from the coach and team after Day 2 of camp was in the books. [Caps video (Reirden, Rinkside Update/Backstrom)]
  • Three of the Caps more recent draft picks, all at different stages in their development, are getting to show off their skills at training camp. [Vogs]
  • Ranking all 31 starting glaotenders heading into the 2019-20 season. [THN]
  • A longer offseason than 2018 has gone a long way toward letting players rest, recover, and work on their skills. [Vogs]
