News

Niskanen (upper body) was placed on long-term injured reserve Saturday and he is considered week-to-week.

Impact

Niskanen exited Friday's contest due to the upper-body injury and it appears the issue will cost him an extended period of time. It's a big blow early in the season along Washington's blue line. The team recalled Madison Bowey from AHL Hershey to replace him on the roster, but it will be difficult to replace Niskanen's experience. It wouldn't be surprising to see Dmitry Orlov's role expand and fantasy value rise with Niskanen out of action for the foreseeable future.
