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. Oct 16 - 10:06 AM

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.
Apr 12 - 1:06 PM

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.
Apr 12 - 11:40 AM

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.
Feb 29 - 2:59 AM

Jay Beagle (hand) could be activated from the injured reserve list as early as Sunday.

Beagle partook in a full practice Saturday and play be in the Washington lineup Sunday. He has been out of action since December 30 and was able to take face offs on Saturday. He has little fantasy value at this time with six goals and 12 points in 36 games.
Feb 28 - 10:14 AM

Jay Beagle has been moved to long-term injured reserve.

However, he can activated at any time because he hasn't played since Dec. 30. He will travel with the team to Chicago on Sunday and he has a shot at playing by then.
Feb 23 - 6:48 PM

Jay Beagle (hand) took part in practice Saturday.

Beagle has been out of action since December 30 with the injury. He didn't partake in line rushes but finally saw the ice with his teammates. He is close to returning to action and has six goals and 12 points in 36 games so he is likely not on your fantasy team.
Feb 20 - 12:56 PM

Jay Beagle (hand) hasn't practiced with his teammates yet.

Coach Barry Trotz isn't sure when it will happen, but the Capitals will not rush him back. Beagle hasn't played since Dec. 30 after he had surgery on his hand.
