  • Capitals' Nicolas Aube-Kubel: Lays lumber against Leafs

    Aube-Kubel recorded nine hits with a blocked shot and a minus-2 rating in Wednesday's 7-3 loss to Toronto.

    The 27-year-old grinder led the Capitals in hits on the night but only tied the Maple Leafs' Simon Benoit for the game's highest total, as things got chippy in the third period. Aube-Kubel has six goals and 16 points in 50 games on the season, but he's added 121 hits, leaving him 19 away from tying his career high in that category with 14 games left on Washington's schedule.

  • Capitals' Nicolas Aube-Kubel: Lights lamp Thursday

    Aube-Kubel notched a goal and added two shots and two hits during Thursday's 5-3 win over the Lightning.

    Aube-Kubel scored a highlight-reel goal in the first period as he dangled around multiple defenders before backhanding the puck past Andrei Vasilevskiy to open the scoring for Washington. The 27-year-old Aube-Kubel has posted two goals and four points in his last 10 games and has been promoted to the top line alongside Alex Ovechkin and Dylan Strome with T.J. Oshie (lower body) on the mend.

  • Capitals' Nicolas Aube-Kubel: Garners assist

    Aube-Kubel recorded an assist in Sunday's 3-2 overtime loss to the Canucks.

    Aube-Kubel was scratched Thursday versus the Panthers, but he's played in the Capitals' last two games, leaving Matthew Phillips as a scratch once again. While the job security isn't strong, Aube-Kubel adds a physical element to the Capitals' fourth line, so he should be in the lineup most of the time. The 27-year-old winger has a modest 14 points with 67 hits, 38 shots on net, 23 PIM and a plus-8 rating through 38 contests this season.

  • Capitals' Nicolas Aube-Kubel: Lights lamp Thursday

    Aube-Kubel recorded a goal and added three hits during Thursday's 5-2 win over the Blues.

    Aube-Kubel received some fortuitous puck luck as a slot pass ended up redirecting off a Blues defender and past goaltender Jordan Binnington. The 27-year-old has notched two goals and five points in his last seven outings, but Aube-Kubel's role as a depth forward keeps him from being a reliable fantasy asset.

  • Capitals' Nicolas Aube-Kubel: Pops for three points Sunday

    Aube-Kubel produced a goal and two assists in Sunday's 4-3 win over the Kings.

    The 27-year-old fourth-liner hadn't even managed two points in a contest since Nov. 10, his first game up after being recalled from AHL Hershey, but Aube-Kubel carried the Caps offense in a career-best performance. While his ice time and role give him a limited fantasy ceiling, he is quietly on pace for a career year. He's racked up 11 points over 26 contests this season, putting him just short of halfway to matching the 23 points he had in 2021-22 between the Flyers and the Avalanche.

  • Capitals' Nicolas Aube-Kubel: Manages helper in loss

    Aube-Kubel registered an assist in Friday's 6-2 loss to the Hurricanes.

    The Capitals aren't asking much of Aube-Kubel in his fourth-line role, but he's been an efficient producer. He has chipped in three goals, five assists and a plus-6 rating through 25 games. Aube-Kubel, who notched four goals and 12 points in 47 outings with the Capitals last season, can become an unrestricted free agent in the summer.

  • Capitals' Nicolas Aube-Kubel: Produces assist in win

    Aube-Kubel logged an assist and four PIM in Thursday's 5-4 win over the Ducks.

    Aube-Kubel opened his 2023-24 campaign with three points over his first two games, then went scoreless in his next five outings. That slump ended with a secondary helper on a Nic Dowd tally in the first period of Thursday's win. Aube-Kubel is up to four points, six shots on net, 16 hits, four PIM an a plus-3 rating through eight contests in a fourth-line role this season.

  • Capitals' Nicolas Aube-Kubel: Two points in season debut

    Aube-Kubel scored a goal and added an assist in Friday's 4-2 win over New Jersey.

    Both points came in the first period, as Aube-Kubel opened the scoring midway through the frame with a one-timer from the faceoff dot to the left of Vitek Vanecek -- a goal that helped chase the Devils netminder from the game. Aube-Kubel was making his season debut after being promoted from AHL Hershey earlier in the day, but he's never been a big offensive threat. The 27-year-old had only four goals and 12 points in 53 games last season split between the Caps and Leafs, and he had just one goal and three points in 11 games for Hershey prior to his recall.

    Aube-Kubel was recalled from AHL Hershey on Friday, Tom Gulitti of reports.

    Aube-Kubel has a goal and three points in 11 AHL games this season. Aube-Kubel played 53 games in the NHL last season, split between Toronto and Washington, scoring four times while adding eight assists. He could slot into a fourth-line role against New Jersey on Friday.

  • Capitals' Nicolas Aube-Kubel: Pots goal Sunday

    Aube-Kubel tallied a goal, four PIM and two shots on net during Sunday's 4-3 preseason loss to the Sabres.

    Aube-Kubel opened the scoring for the Capitals in the first period. The 27-year-old is once again expected to serve as a bottom-six contributor for Washington, but a lack of consistent ice time and opportunity won't do much for his fantasy value in standard formats.

  • Capitals' Nicolas Aube-Kubel: Lights lamp Tuesday

    Aube-Kubel tallied a goal and dished three hits during Tuesday's 5-3 loss to the Rangers.

    Aube-Kubel has two goals and four points in his last nine games and seems to be getting regular ice time following the trades of Garnet Hathaway and Lars Eller. The 26-year-old is proving to be a useful depth forward for the Capitals, evidenced by the one-year, $1.225 extension he signed on March 3, but he isn't much of a fantasy asset.

  • Capitals' Nicolas Aube-Kubel: Signs one-year contract

    Aube-Kubel inked a one-year, $1.225 million contract extension with the Capitals on Friday.

  • Capitals' Nicolas Aube-Kubel: Returning Tuesday

    Aube-Kubel will draw into the lineup Tuesday against the Wild and skate on the top line, Samantha Pell of The Washington Post reports.

    Aube-Kubel is making his return with a plum assignment on the top line alongside Alex Ovechkin and Dylan Strome. The Capitals have been shuffling lines aggressively in recent outings so it's not clear how long the 26-year-old will enjoy the cushy assignment, but his appeal in daily formats gets a sizable boost given the current deployment.

  • Capitals' Nicolas Aube-Kubel: Scores first of the season

    Aube-Kubel scored a goal on two shots in Thursday's 6-2 win over the Blue Jackets.

    Aube-Kubel gave Washington a 2-1 lead in the second period, jumping on a neutral-zone turnover before working around the Columbus defense and firing a shot under the pad of Elvis Merzlikins. It's the first goal of the season for Aube-Kubel, who'd been a healthy scratch in the Capitals' previous two contests. The 26-year-old forward has a goal and four assists through 12 games this season.

  • Capitals' Nicolas Aube-Kubel: Supplies two assists

    Aube-Kubel notched two assists, four shots on goal, two PIM and a plus-2 rating in Tuesday's 7-3 win over the Blackhawks.

    Aube-Kubel was initially projected to be a healthy scratch for the 11th game in a row, but he got the assignment over Joe Snively with Lars Eller (upper body) out. It worked out, as Aube-Kubel earned his first two points of the season with assists on goals by Nic Dowd and Dmitry Orlov. Aube-Kubel has added eight shots on net, 11 PIM, 29 hits and a plus-1 rating in 11 contests between the Capitals and the Maple Leafs. When he plays, he's often limited to a fourth-line role.

  • Capitals' Nicolas Aube-Kubel: Receives three-game suspension

    Aube-Kubel was suspended for three games Saturday for his check to the head of Tampa Bay's Cal Foote on Friday.

    Aube-Kubel also received a match penalty Friday because of the incident. Foote was injured on the play and didn't return to Friday's contest. The NHL Department of Player Safety argued that Aube-Kubel made the head the main point of contact and that the head contact was avoidable. Aube-Kubel is eligible to return Nov. 19 versus Colorado. If Washington inserts him into the lineup after he serves his suspension, it will likely be as a fourth liner.

  • Capitals' Nicolas Aube-Kubel: Hearing with Player Safety

    Aube-Kubel will have a hearing Saturday with NHL Player Safety after his illegal check to the head of Tampa Bay's Cal Foote on Friday.

    Aube-Kubel has no points, four PIM and 21 hits in six games while averaging 9:05 of ice time with the Maple Leafs this season. Even if he clears and gets sent to the minors, there's a fair chance Toronto will summon him later in the season. Any time he's in the NHL, though, it likely won't be for anything more than a fourth-line role.

  • Capitals' Nicolas Aube-Kubel: Claimed by Capitals

    Washington claimed Aube-Kubel off waivers from Toronto on Saturday, Elliotte Friedman of Sportsnet reports.

    Aube-Kubel joined the Leafs on a one-year, $1 million contract in July after he didn't receive a qualifying offer from the Avalanche. In six games with Toronto this season, the 26-year-old forward posted two shots on goal and 21 hits.
