Evgeny Kuznetsov to return for Capitals vs. Devils after concussion

November 30, 2018

The Washington Capitals will have center Evgeny Kuznetsov back Friday when they host the New Jersey Devils at Capital One Arena.

Kuznetsov missed the Capitals’ last six games after suffering an upper-body injury Nov. 14 against Winnipeg. General manager Brian MacLellan later said on a podcast that it was a concussion.
