Per John Walton, the Washington Capitals have made their final cuts heading into Saturday’s season opener with the Carolina Hurricanes. Dimitry Orlov, Cody Eakin, and Mattias Sjogren have all been assigned to Hershey of the AHL. This means that Mathieu Perreault and Jay Beagle have made the team.
Look for Beagle to open the season on the fourth line, and for Perreault to be a healthy scratch to start. Obviously, this could all change at any point.
