Top Evgeny Kuznetsov News

  • Hurricanes' Evgeny Kuznetsov: Pair of points in win

    Kuznetsov netted a power-play goal on two shots and added an assist in Saturday's 3-1 win over the Islanders in Game 1.

    Kuznetsov opened the scoring just 1:35 into the first period and added a helper on Stefan Noesen's game-winner in the third. The 31-year-old Kuznetsov ended the regular season with just two assists over his last 13 outings, resulting in him dropping to a bottom-six role to begin the playoffs. He had 24 points across 63 appearances in the regular season, by far his worst full campaign, but he could be a key depth scorer if the Hurricanes go on a deep run.

  • Hurricanes' Evgeny Kuznetsov: Continues to shine with new team

    Kuznetsov snapped a four-game pointless streak with an assist in Thursday's 4-0 win over the Red Wings.

    Considering he was put on waivers by the Capitals prior to being dealt to the Hurricanes at the trade deadline, Kuznetsov has really managed to resurrect his season, and possibly his career, since his arrival in Raleigh. He now has six points (two goals, four assists) in nine games with his new team, and he's provided the Canes with valuable depth scoring while playing on the third line with Martin Necas and Jordan Martinook.

  • Hurricanes' Evgeny Kuznetsov: Two more points Sunday

    Kuznetsov recorded a goal and an assist in Sunday's 7-2 win over the Senators.

    Kuznetsov put the Hurricanes ahead 2-1 early in the second period with a power-play marker, beating Anton Forsberg with a wrister from the circle, before adding an assist on a Dmitry Orlov tally in the third. The 31-year-old Kuznetsov has looked like his old self in Carolina, picking up two goals and four points in his last three contests. He's up to 21 points (eight goals, 13 assists) through 49 games this season between the Hurricanes and Capitals.

  • Hurricanes' Evgeny Kuznetsov: Pots first goal with new team

    Kuznetsov scored his seventh goal of the season in Thursday's 4-0 win over the Panthers.

    The long-time Capital picked up his first goal, and first point, as a member of the Hurricanes midway through the second period, getting the puck with tons of open space around him before picking his spot against Sergei Bobrovsky. Kuznetsov has been centering a talented line with Martin Necas and fellow newcomer Jake Guentzel at even strength while skating on Carolina's first power-play unit, so points could begin to come in bunches for the 31-year-old now that he's beginning to get comfortable in his new surroundings.

  • Hurricanes' Evgeny Kuznetsov: Set to play Saturday

    Kuznetsov (personal) will make his Hurricanes debut Saturday against New Jersey, per Cory Lavalette of the North State Journal.

    Kuznetsov, who was on non-roster injured reserve, hasn't played since Jan. 27 because he was in the NHL/NHLPA Player Assistance Program. He had six goals and 17 points in 43 contests with Washington before being traded to Carolina on Friday. It remains to be seen exactly how the Hurricanes will utilize him, but Kuznetsov will likely serve in a middle-six role versus the Devils.

  • Hurricanes' Evgeny Kuznetsov: Carolina bound

    Kuznetsov was traded to Carolina from Washington in exchange for a 2025 third-round pick Friday, Pierre LeBrun of The Athletic reports. The Capitals will retain 50 percent of Kuznetzov's $7.8 million annual salary.

    Kuznetsov is currently in the follow-up care phase of the NHL/NHLPA Player Assistance Program. He had six goals and 11 assists in 43 games with the Capitals before the trade. The 31-year-old will likely line up as a middle-six center with the Hurricanes once he clears the last phase of his rehabilitation. Kuznetsov joined the Canes for practice Friday, per Walt Ruff of the Hurricanes' official site.

  • Capitals' Evgeny Kuznetsov: Put on waivers

    Kuznetsov (personal) was put on waivers Saturday, per Elliotte Friedman of Sportsnet.

    Kuznetsov had six goals and 17 points in 43 contests this season before entering the NHL/NHLPA Player Assistance Program on Feb. 5. He received clearance to resume practicing with the Capitals on Saturday prior to ending up on waivers. Kuznetsov comes with a $7.8 million cap hit through the 2024-25 campaign, so he's unlikely to be claimed. GM Brian MacLellan said the decision to waive Kuznetsov was about providing the the 31-year-old forward with a fresh start, according to Stephen Whyno of the Associated Press, so the plan is presumably to send him to AHL Hershey if he clears.

  • Capitals' Evgeny Kuznetsov: Cleared to practice

    Kuznetsov (personal) was cleared to practice Saturday by the NHL/NHLPA Player Assistance Program.

  • Capitals' Evgeny Kuznetsov: Enters Player Assistance Program

    Kuznetsov (personal) entered the NHL/NHLPA Player Assistance Program on Monday.

  • Capitals' Evgeny Kuznetsov: Not skating Monday

    Kuznetsov (personal) did not take part in Monday's practice, Bailey Johnson of The Washington Post reports.

    Kuznetsov's availability for Tuesday's home game against Montreal has yet to be determined, but the Capitals recalled Michael Sgarbossa from AHL Hershey to potentially cover any absence. The 31-year-old Kuznetsov has had a very disappointing campaign with just six goals and 17 points in 43 games and is far from a reliable fantasy asset these days.

  • Capitals' Evgeny Kuznetsov: Two helpers Saturday

    Kuznetsov notched two assists, one on the power play, in Saturday's 5-4 loss to the Stars.

    The two helpers Saturday matched his entire point total from the 10 games prior. Kuznetsov has had a rough season so far, with six goals and 17 points in 43 contests, but he's still seeing power-play time and could work his way back into a top-six role at even strength if he shows more consistency after the All-Star break.

  • Capitals' Evgeny Kuznetsov: Two-point effort in loss

    Kuznetsov picked up a goal and an assist in Wednesday's 6-3 loss to the Devils.

    Both points came in the second period as the Capitals rallied from an early 3-1 deficit, but the game was all Devils after that. Kuznetsov snapped a 10-game point drought with the performance, and on the season the 31-year-old has stumbled to a disappointing six goals and 13 points through 32 contests.

  • Capitals' Evgeny Kuznetsov: Scores in return to lineup

    Kuznetsov scored a goal on two shots in Thursday's 5-4 shootout loss to Dallas.

The veteran winger made an impact in his return Thursday, finishing a breakaway in the second period to put the Caps ahead 3-1. Kuznetsov now has five goals and 10 points through 20 games this season after posting 55 points (12 goals, 43 assists) last year.

  • Capitals' Evgeny Kuznetsov: Set to draw back into lineup

    Kuznetsov is expected to draw into the Capitals' lineup Thursday versus Dallas after being a healthy scratch Monday against Arizona, Tom Gulitti of NHL.com reports.

    Kuznetsov has four goals and nine points in 19 games this season, which puts him on pace to fall short of the 55 points in 81 outings he provided in 2022-23. He's also been quiet recently with just one point (a goal) over his last six appearances. Kuznetsov will attempt to break out of his slump Thursday while likely serving on the second line and second power-play unit. Sonny Milano might be a healthy scratch after dressing in Washington's previous 14 contests.

    Kuznetsov scored a goal on two shots in Monday's 2-1 loss to the Sharks.

    Kuznetsov was held off the scoresheet Friday in his return from a two-game absence due to an illness. He was able to get on the board Monday, but he was the only Capital to find the twine behind Mackenzie Blackwood in this contest. Kuznetsov is up to four goals, nine points, 41 shots on net and a minus-2 rating through 16 contests in a rather slow start to the campaign.
