Barry Trotz thinks Alex Ovechkin will be fine after injury scare at practice

Alex Ovechkin limped to the locker room late in Monday’ practice and did not return, but Coach Barry Trotz said he thinks the Caps’ captain is going to be okay.

Ovechkin, who is tied for the league lead in goals with 10, was participating in a spirited 2-on-2 battle drill when he got “tangled up” with a teammate and went down.

“I think he’s going to be okay,” Trotz said. “I got to talk to the trainers here. He got tangled up there; it’s a contact sport.”

After slowly getting up to his skates, Ovechkin gingerly skated his way to the bench at Kettler Capitals Iceplex with the assistance of head athletic trainer Jason Serbus.

Serbus examined Ovechkin on the bench before No. 8 limped to the locker room.

Ovechkin did not return to ice and was not available to reporters immediately afterward.

“I think he’s going to be okay,” Trotz said. “I’ll have a better idea a little bit later today or tomorrow. He just got tangled up.”

Upper-body injury keeps Andre Burakovsky out of practice

Capitals winger Andre Burakovsky did not practice on Monday morning due to an upper-body injury, the team announced.

Although the Caps did not specify the location or the nature of the injury, replays showed Burakovsky remove his left glove and flex his hand after drawing a hooking foul with about two minutes remaining in Washington’s 4-1 loss to Florida. He was also examined by team doctors after the game.

Burakovsky has a goal and three assists in nine games this season.

With Burakovsky sidelined on Monday, Coach Barry Trotz shuffled his forward lines, promoting Alex Chiasson to the second combo with Alex Ovechkin and Evgeny Kuznetsov while dropping Jakub Vrana to the third line with Brett Connolly and Lars Eller. Burakovsky’s injury also drew Nathan Walker back into the regular rotation; he was on the left side of the fourth line.  

The Caps do not play again until Thursday in Vancouver so they’ve got time to evaluate Burakovsky’s progress and weigh their options if he is unable to suit up.

Burakovsky missed 15 games with a broken right hand last season.
