Jay Beagle is set to play his first NHL game in his hometown of Calgary on Saturday.
It's going to be quite a night for the Beagle family as their 29-year-old son makes his return home. Beagle came off the injured reserve list on Monday from an upper body injury suffered during training camp. He played his first game against Edmonton and played on the second line, winning eight of ten draws. He was moved down to the third line in practice on Friday with Evgeny Kuznetsov and Jason Chimera.

Jay Beagle (upper body) is expected to come off injure reserve and play Wednesday against Edmonton.

Beagle skated with Andre Burakovsky and Marcus Johansson at practice Monday and could start there in Brooks Laich's place. He was hurt in the preseason.
Oct 20 - 4:32 PM

Jay Beagle (upper body) is close to returning to action.

Beagle has yet to suit up this season and his delay in getting into the lineup has been the excellent play of the fourth line. Coach Barry Trotz does not need to rush him back and is taking his time getting him into the lineup. Look for Beagle to play during the Capitals Western Canada swing that starts on Wednesday in Edmonton.

Jay Beagle (upper body) might be able to play on Saturday.

Beagle has missed Washington's first three games in 2014-15. He has four goals and nine points in 62 contests last season.

Jay Beagle is unlikely to start the season as he is out with an upper body injury.

Beagle suffered the injury early in the pre-season. He had only nine points in 62 games last season so he should not be on your radar.
Oct 5 - 11:38 AM

Jay Beagle focused on gaining some strength in the off-season and he made five pounds of muscle.

"I feel a little better. Better than I did last year," he said. "You always find out once you start getting into games. It's hard to tell in scrimmages and stuff." Beagle was scratched for 18 straight games in October and November, so he'll be looking for a fresh start this season with a new coach. In 62 appearances last year, he picked up just nine points and his goal in 2014-15 is to be able to contribute more offensively.
Sep 8 - 3:40 PM

Jay Beagle scored a pair of goals in Friday's 4-0 win over Chicago.

It marked the first two-goal game of his career in his 191st NHL regular season contest. Beagle has four goals and nine points, while averaging 11:09 of ice time, in 61 matches this year.

Jan 26 - 10:45 AM

Jay Beagle will finally reenter the Capitals' lineup on Friday.

Beagle hasn't been given an opportunity since Oct. 16. He's projected to play alongside Joel Ward and Jason Chimera.

Jay Beagle didn't skate on Wednesday because of an illness.

The Washington Capitals don't play until Friday, so if he has the flu then there's a good chance that he won't end up missing a game. Still, we'll err on the side of caution and list him as day-to-day for now.

Jay Beagle will probably get back into Washington's lineup Thursday night.

He was a healthy scratch in Tuesday's opener, but the Capitals have sent down Michael Latta.

Even though the Capitals hung with the Rangers, their parade to the penalty box early on set them back.

They took six minor penalties in the first 27 minutes of the game. The Rangers only capitalized on one (and scored just as one expired), but it kept the Capitals on their heels and kept their offensive players glued to the bench. "Your momentum gets killed," Jay Beagle said, "and it’s tough to get going again. We need to keep our sticks down and stay off the refs." Mike Green also added: Anytime you’re taking penalties, it’s losing momentum and it’s tough to get that flow of the game. Guys get tired and we can’t have that."

Jay Beagle and his Washington teammates have had to adjust to coach Adam Oates' new penalty kill system.

The Capitals improved their penalty kill over the course of the season. They surrendered 20 power-play goals in the last 39 games after giving up 15 in the first 11 and they killed all seven of the Rangers' man advantage situations in the playoffs after two matches. Washington has been credited with 38 blocked shots in the postseason, but Oates doesn't like his players to drop down in front of the opposition when they do it. "With a PK that's so structural, you can't afford to kind of get out of position," Beagle said. "There's also the time like [Saturday] when Fehrsie goes down and blocks that shot. That was a huge block. It's kind of a read. It's kind of like a player's read. If you see that he's going to make the shot and you have a chance to get down and block it, we obviously need to get those blocks, too. But it's a balance. You've got to keep it in the back of your mind."
