Kuznetsov to make his Capitals debut tonight
Evgeny Kuznetsov is expected to make his Washington Capitals debut tonight, as announced by the Capitals twitter account. Kuznetsov was drafted way back in 2010 and finally signed a deal with the Caps last week, that story can be found here.
I am not sure what line the Caps will put Kuznetsov for tonight’s game against the Pittsburgh Penguins but if I were to guess it would be the third or fourth line. Right now it looks like Kuznetsov will be on the Caps fourth line. The Caps plan on easing Kuznetsov into NHL action. No doubt Kuznetsov has the talent to become a top six forward.
Here is the tweet from the Capitals about Kuznetsov playing tonight.
