Jay Beagle skated on a line with Alex Ovechkin during Monday's practice.

Head coach Barry Trotz is looking to shake things up after the Caps dropped a 5-1 decision to the Hurricanes on Saturday night. "Jay was sort of pigeon-holed as a guy that could kill penalties, give you energy but wasn’t going to score, and I don’t see that," Trotz said. "He’s not a natural goal-scorer like Ovi or someone else, but he keeps working on the offensive game and he keeps producing. His production for minutes played is higher than three-quarters of our team. So, why not give that young man an opportunity because he’s worked at his game?" Beagle's long-term fantasy prospects aren't great, but in the short-term his stock definitely gets a boost while he's paired with Ovechkin.

Jay Beagle netted a pair goals in Friday's 3-2 overtime win over Chicago.

He scored both of Washington's regulation time markers during the first period. Beagle opened the scoring with a shorthanded goal and he scored his third goal of the year later in the frame. He has contributed six points in 13 games.

Jay Beagle picked up two assists in a 3-1 win Sunday.

Beagle did it in his hometown of Calgary and there likely was plenty of family and friends in the crowd. He is not a big scorer as it was only his second and third assists of the season but it still was a nice game for the hometown boy.

Coach Barry Trotz thinks the Jay Beagle, Daniel Winnik and Tom Wilson line has been terrific this season.

The line scored both goals Saturday in a 2-1 win over as Winnik had both. "I don’t consider them our fourth line right now," Trotz said. "They’re probably one of our best lines. Tonight, they were fantastic." The Capitals need more scoring from their bottom-six forwards and this outburst does not hurt.

Jay Beagle hopes to be Washington's third-line center again next season.

"That's what I want to be. So that's up to the coaching staff and the coaches," he said. "Coming into this year that was my goal, was to make that third line stronger, and I felt like coaches gave me that opportunity, and when I had that opportunity I did my best with it. And playing with a guy like [Jason Chimera] and [Tom Wilson], it was awesome. It was a lot of fun. It was some of the funnest hockey I've played." GM Brian MacLellan wants a faster and more offensive third line in 2016-17, which could bump Beagle to the fourth combination.

When Jay Beagle returned from a hand injury on Feb. 28 he only had about 70% grip strength.

Beagle said it took a long time for him to get back to 100%, but he's at that point now. He's healthy going into the offseason, which should allow him to train without complications.

Jay Beagle scored a goal in Washington's 6-1 win against Philadelphia in Game 3 on Monday.

It was Beagle's second marker of the series. That's quite impressive when you consider that Beagle only had three career playoff goals in 37 contests prior to this series. He finished the 2015-16 regular season with eight goals and 15 points in 57 games.

Jay Beagle could have played through his lower-body injury on Sunday if needed.

It was the season finale though and the Capitals were more concerned with having their players ready for the playoffs, so Beagle was scratched. He should be fine for Game 1.

Jay Beagle (lower body) took part in Tuesday's practice.

Beagle appears to be fine after blocking a shot on Saturday and missing the Capitals' season finale. His absence on Sunday should be taken with a grain of salt given that Washington was resting other players too in preparation for the playoffs.

Jay Beagle won't be in the lineup for Sunday's game against the Ducks.

Beagle suffered a lower-body injury in the first period of Saturday's game against the Blues. He's considered day-to-day at this point. It's unclear if he'll be ready for Game 1 of the playoffs.
Apr 10 - 6:15 PM

Jay Beagle suffered a lower body injury in the first period Saturday and did not return.

Beagle suffered the injury when blocking a Vladimir Tarasenko shot and was unable to continue. The Capitals will re-evaluate the center on Sunday and see if he is able to play in the first game of the playoffs. He had eight goals and 17 points in 56 games this season so his fantasy value is negligible.
Apr 10 - 12:20 PM

With his goal and assist during Friday's 4-2 win over Colorado, Jay Beagle now sits just three points shy of matching his career high.

Which was set just last season, mind you. The 30-year-old has eight goals and 17 points thus far, and should be interesting to watch through the end of the campaign.
Apr 2 - 1:49 AM

Jay Beagle's seventh goal of the season was certainly full of controversy.

Beagle's goal forced two video reviews, first to make sure the puck crossed the goal line and secondly, to make sure there was no goaltender interference. The Capitals were the beneficiaries of both reviews but it mattered little as they dropped a 3-2 decision to the Rangers.
Mar 5 - 10:51 AM

Jay Beagle (hand) was activated from the IL on Sunday February 28.

Beagle logged 9:40 minutes of ice time in his return. It was his first game since Dec. 30.
