Jay Beagle has won the third line center's job.

Beagle will play with Tom Wilson and Brooks Laich on the third line. He had 10 goals and 20 points last season so his fantasy value is negligible.
Oct 3 - 10:55 AM

Jay Beagle is aiming to win the Capitals’ third-line center job.

He set career highs (10 goals, 10 assists) under first-year coach Barry Trotz. "That’s always been my dream," said Beagle. "I’ve really worked a lot on faceoffs this summer, just puckhandling and trying to be a more skilled two-way forward. Just trying to build off what I had last year. The forward that can win those crucial draws, that you can put out in any situation … is the type of player I want to be." Beagle offers no fantasy appeal.
Sep 6 - 9:30 AM

Jay Beagle has re-upped with the Washington Capitals on a three-year contract extension worth $1.75 million per season.

He was a pending unrestricted free agent who set personal bests with 10 goals and 10 assists for 20 points in 62 games last season. Beagle won 56.5 percent of his draws 2014-15 and he posted an incredible 63.8 winning percentage on faceoffs during the playoffs. "Jay is a hard-working player who plays multiple positions and is an excellent face-off man and penalty killer," said GM Brian MacLellan in a statement. "Jay has improved steadily since joining our organization and has always brought his game to a different level in the playoffs."

Jay Beagle said that he would be 'honored' to re-sign with the Washington Capitals.

Beagle is eligible to become an unrestricted free agent on July 1 but if he had his druthers, he wants back in with the Capitals. "I would love to stay here," Beagle said. "I would be honored to. That’s the way I look at it. At the end of the day, I will talk to my agent. That’s why I have him. He’s there for me and he’s always been great for me. I definitely want to hear what he has to say and see what happens. This is the first time I’ve been through it. I have no clue what could happen. But I obviously love it here. I’m not going to say otherwise." Beagle had ten goals and 20 points in 60 regular season games so his fantasy value is limited at best.

Jay Beagle wants to re-sign with the Washington Capitals, but the two sides might not see eye-to-eye.

Capitals GM Brian MacLellan is interested in signing Beagle "at a good number as a fourth-line player." Beagle might see himself as being worth more than that though, especially after he averaged 15:47 minutes per contest in the playoffs. He's eligible to become an unrestricted free agent after completing his three-year, $2.7 million deal.

Jay Beagle generated an assist in Washington's 2-1 win over the New York Rangers on Wednesday night.

Jay Beagle scored his first goal of the postseason Wednesday night as the Washington Capitals blanked the visiting New York Rangers 1-0 in Game 3 of the teams' Eastern Conference Second Round playoff series.

Beagle beat Rangers goalie Henrik Lundqvist on a wrist shot at 7:31 of the second period. Andre Burakovsky and Troy Brouwer drew the assists. Burakovsky's assist was his first point of the playoffs. Beagle now has a goal and three assists in the postseason, a career high for the right winger. He was previously limited to a point over seven games in the Caps' 2013 postseason run and two points in 12 playoff games in 2012. With Wednesday's win, the Capitals took a 2-1 lead in their best-of-7 series against the Rangers and maintained the home-ice advantage they earned with a split of the first two games at Madison Square Garden. Game 4 will be played Wednesday night in Washington.
May 4 - 10:52 PM

Jay Beagle had two assists in Washington's 5-1 win against the New York Islanders in Game 5 on Thursday.

His playoff debut came in 2009 and he didn't record a point over four games.

Beagle had missed the Capitals past 14 games with an upper body injury but is good to play for Game 1. He will skate on the Caps checking line alongside Brooks Laich and Erich Fehr. The veteran forward has always been a solid defensive forward in the playoffs for the Capitals and has 23 games of playoff experience.

Jay Beagle (upper body) won't travel with the Capitals

"We feel he'd probably have a little better chance of being able to heal, so he's going to stay back," coach Barry Trotz said.

Beagle hasn't played since Mar. 11, but he could be back next week.
