Evgeny Kuznetsov has been selected as the first star of the month for January.

He generated seven goals and 20 points in 15 matches. Kuznetsov had at least one point in 11 of his 15 appearances and he posted seven multi-point efforts. He is finally rounding back into the form he displayed last year, which is great news for fantasy owners and for the Capitals.

Kuznetsov took a pass from Justin Williams before sniping home his 5th goal in his last six games. After a slow start to the season, Kuznetsov now has 20 points in his last 14 games played with 37 points in 49 games overall. We wouldn't be surprised to see the 24-year-old finish the year with almost 70 points considering his recent offensive surge. He picked up his assist on a late third period goal by Alexander Ovechkin.
Jan 31 - 9:40 PM

Evgeny Kuznetsov scored twice for the Capitals in a 5-2 win over the New Jersey Devils on Thursday.

Jan 11 - 5:52 PM

Evgeny Kuznetsov has been handed a $2,000 fine for diving/embellishment.

Kuznetsov received a warning on Oct. 20th, but the first offense doesn't come with a fine. The reason he needs to write a check now is because of a second incident on Dec. 29.
Jan 5 - 3:10 PM

Evgeny Kuznetsov scored a goal and three assists in Washington's 6-5 OT win over the Toronto Maple Leafs.

Kuznetsov helped set up goals by Justin Williams (first period), John Carlson (third period) and Alex Ovechkin (overtime). Kuznetsov also scored one of his own in the second frame. Kuznetsov's been a bit of disappointment this season, but fantasy owners should see tonight's performance as a big positive. Kuznetsov has four goals and 23 points in 37 games. Now would be a good time to buy-low on his fantasy stock.
Jan 3 - 10:39 PM

A turnover from Evgeny Kuznetsov led to New Jersey's PA Parenteau scoring an unassisted goal on Thursday.

The Devils went on to earn a 2-1 shootout victory, putting additional weight on Kuznetsov's mistake. "I just thought that was very careless," Capitals coach Barry Trotz said. "We’re in our zone, we win the faceoff and you’re going to throw a little blind pass? Secure the puck and live to fight another day." Kuznetsov has struggled offensively this season compared to the preseason expectations. He has three goals and 18 points in 34 contests.

Evgeny Kuznetsov is on a five-game point streak after getting two assists on Tuesday.

Kuznetsov had 77 points in 2015-16, but he couldn't get much going in October and November. Now it seems like he's finally turned a corner, though he still has a ways to go as his 16 points in 28 contests remains disappointing relative to our preseason expectations.

Evgeny Kuznetsov has produced a point in four consecutive contests.

"He's starting to use his biggest asset, which is his ability to skate," coach Barry Trotz said. "He's skating at a higher level and when he's doing that ... he's winning those battles, taking those pucks to areas. Therefore, he's creating more and is move dangerous and is that top centerman you saw at the start of last year where he could take over a game. You've seen that the last couple of games." Kuznetsov has five assists over that span, but he is still looking for his first goal in eight games.
Tue, Dec 13, 2016 05:43:00 PM

Evgeny Kuznetsov was pointless for the fourth straight game.

Kuznetsov has not had a good season at all after a 20 goal, 77 point performance last year. He has only three goals and nine points in 23 contests and certainly has been a sore spot for his fantasy owners this season. You have to keep him but it would be nice if he could start contributing.
