17 - Number of Capitals who have scored at least one goal this season, the most of any team in the NHL so far. Only eight players who have dressed for at least one game for the Caps has yet to dent the twine; of those eight, only three of them (Carl Hagelin, Dmitry Orlov, and Nick Jensen) have played in at least five games.

10 of those 17 players have scored more than one goal, which also leads the league (tied with Minnesota). And five of the 17 players to find the back of the net for the Caps are defensemen, tied for the most with Montreal and Buffalo.
