  • Capitals' Alexander Alexeyev: Lends assist Sunday

    Alexeyev recorded an assist and two hits in Sunday's 4-2 loss to the Rangers in Game 4.

    Alexeyev set up a Hendrix Lapierre goal in the second period. The helper ended Alexeyev's 19-game point drought, though it was encouraging to see him in the lineup regularly down the stretch. The 24-year-old blueliner had just three points with 48 hits, 59 blocked shots and a minus-8 rating over 39 regular-season contests. Alexeyev is under contract for 2024-25, so he'll have a chance to compete for a bottom-four role with the Capitals in training camp.

  • Capitals' Alexander Alexeyev: Deals helper in win

    Alexeyev notched an assist in Saturday's 2-1 win over the Canucks.

    Alexeyev has two helpers over his last five outings. The 24-year-old defenseman saw just 10:16 of ice time Saturday, his lowest total since November. He remains in the mix for third-pairing minutes, sharing a spot in the lineup with Ethan Bear. Alexeyev has a meager three points with 10 shots on net, 38 blocked shots, 20 hits and a minus-5 rating over 23 appearances.

  • Capitals' Alexander Alexeyev: Bags apple

    Alexyev tallied an assist and blocked three shots while logging 15:14 of ice time during Thursday's 6-0 win over the Penguins.

    Alexeyev made a pinpoint pass to a wide open Sonny Milano to end a nine-game point drought dating back to Nov. 24. With Joel Edmundson having been traded to Toronto, the 24-year-old Alexeyev should have less trouble getting ice time in the home stretch of the season, but the presence of Ethan Bear could prevent him from garnering a regular role.

  • Capitals' Alexander Alexeyev: Pots first goal

    Alexeyev tallied a goal and added two shots while logging 10:55 of ice time in Wednesday's 4-3 overtime win against the Sabres.

    The goal marks the first of Alexeyev's NHL career -- not to mention his first point of the season. The 24-year-old has struggled to garner a consistent role and has been competing with Lucas Johansen and Hardy Haman-Aktell for playing time as the Capitals have dealt with various injuries to their defense corps. With Joel Edmundson now back in the fold after missing the first month of the season and Martin Fehervary (lower body) nearing a return, it's unlikely Alexeyev will get the regular playing time he needs to deliver much in the way of dividends for fantasy managers.

  • Capitals' Alexander Alexeyev: Inks extension

    Alexeyev signed a two-year, $1.65 million extension with the Capitals on Monday, Elliotte Friedman of Sportsnet reports.

    Alexeyev recorded five assists while averaging 16:27 of ice time through 32 games as a rookie with Washington this season. The 23-year-old was a first-round pick in the 2018 NHL Entry Draft and should have a full-time role at the NHL level during the 2023-24 campaign.

  • Capitals' Alexander Alexeyev: Snags helper in loss

    Alexeyev recorded an assist in Friday's 5-2 loss to the Blues.

    Defenseman Nick Jensen has an upper-body injury that caused him to miss the most recent contest, and that has opened up additional opportunities for Alexeyev, whom the Capitals drafted 31st overall in 2018. Alexeyev has five assists accounting for his point total through 20 contests. He's bound to go through his share of growing pains in the NHL, but the big defender at 6-foot-4, 213 pounds has a bright future, and he'll be a physical force for a Capitals blue line forming a new identity following the trade of Dmitry Orlov to the Bruins.

  • Capitals' Alexander Alexeyev: Steps up Wednesday

    Alexeyev logged an assist, three shots on goal and two hits in Wednesday's 3-2 overtime win over the Ducks.

    Alexeyev was called upon to log 25:08 of ice time due to injuries taking Nick Jensen (upper body) and Martin Fehervary (lower body) out of the contest. This was all the more impressive for Alexeyev since he had played just five of the Capitals' 23 games since the start of January, with his last appearance being Jan. 21. The 23-year-old could be set for a much larger role if either of his injured teammates miss more time. Alexeyev now has three assists, 10 shots on net, 14 hits, 17 blocked shots and a minus-2 rating through 13 outings.
