News

Niskanen (upper body) is ready for Sunday's game against the Blues, Tom Gulitti of NHL.com reports.

Impact

Niskanen missed just one game with this upper-body ailment, and he'll return to his normal top defensive role. The 31-year-old blueliner has three goals and eight assists through 27 games this season, but he's expected to play on Washington's power play Sunday.
