Top Michael Sgarbossa News

  • Capitals' Michael Sgarbossa: Waived Friday

    Sgarbossa was placed on waivers Friday, according to CapFriendly.

    Sgarbossa scored four points in 10 appearances with Washington last season. Assuming he goes unclaimed, the veteran forward should spend most of the 2022-23 campaign with AHL Hershey but he'll likely earn an NHL promotion as an injury replacement at some point.

  • Capitals' Michael Sgarbossa: Assigned to AHL affiliate

    Sgarbossa was demoted from the taxi squad to AHL Hershey on Thursday.

    Sgarbossa hasn't played since Jan. 8 versus Minnesota, so he'll head to the minors for some much-needed playing time. The 29-year-old winger has tallied four points through 10 top-level appearances this season, so he could be back with the big club sooner rather than later.

  • Capitals' Michael Sgarbossa: Joins taxi squad

  • Capitals' Michael Sgarbossa: Rejoins team

    Sgarbossa (COVID-19 protocols) was cleared to rejoin team activities Monday, Tarik El-Bashir of The Athletic reports.

    El-Bashir goes on to note that Sgarbossa had a false positive that caused him to miss Sunday's 3-2 loss to the Kings. The 29-year-old has registered two goals and three points in seven games with the Capitals this season.

  • Capitals' Michael Sgarbossa: In virus protocols

    Sgarbossa won't play Sunday versus the Kings after he was placed in the NHL's COVID-19 protocols.

    Sgarbossa is the fourth Capital currently in the protocols. He'll need two negative tests to be activated, which makes him questionable at best for Tuesday's game against the Flyers.

  • Capitals' Michael Sgarbossa: Records two points Friday

    Sgarbossa scored an empty-net goal on three shots, supplied an assist and went plus-2 in Friday's 5-2 win over the Jets.

    Sgarbossa set up Brett Leason on the opening tally in the second period before the latter returned the favor in the third. These were Sgarbossa's first two points since his season debut Nov. 24 versus the Canadiens. The 29-year-old has two goals, one assist, eight shots on net and a plus-1 rating in seven contests overall.

  • Capitals' Michael Sgarbossa: Pots goal Wednesday

    Sgarbossa tallied a goal and two shots during Wednesday's 6-3 win over the Canadiens.

    Sgarbossa was recalled in the face of a worsening injury situation to Washington's forward ranks and paid immediate dividends. The 29-year-old has been a solid depth player for the organization but is likely headed back to the minors once Conor Sheary (lower body), Lars Eller (COVID-19 protocols), or T.J. Oshie (lower body) return to the lineup and therefore has very limited fantasy value in the short term.

  • Capitals' Michael Sgarbossa: Recalled from minors

    Sgarbossa was called up by Washington on Wednesday, Samantha Pell of The Washington Post reports.

    Sgarbossa provides insurance for the Capitals in case Conor Sheary (lower body) is unable to return for Wednesday's game against the Canadiens. The 29-year-old forward has eight goals and 14 points in 15 games with AHL Hershey this season.

  • Capitals' Michael Sgarbossa: Placed on waivers

    Sgarbossa was waived by Washington on Tuesday.

    Sgarbossa was contending for a depth forward spot with the Capitals during training camp but will have to wait a little longer to return to the NHL ranks. The 29-year-old posted two assists in five games with the Capitals during the 2020-21 season.

  • Capitals' Michael Sgarbossa: Inks two-year deal

    Sgarbossa signed a two-year, two-way contract extension with the Capitals on Thursday.

    Sgarbossa spent the majority of the 2020-21 campaign in the minors, picking up 10 points through 14 games, but he also drew into five games with the Capitals, notching two helpers over that span. The 28-year-old forward will likely continue to spend most of his time with AHL Hershey for the duration of his two-year extension.

  • Capitals' Michael Sgarbossa: Sent to AHL

    Sgarbossa was reassigned from Washington's taxi squad to AHL Hershey on Monday.

  • Capitals' Michael Sgarbossa: Added to taxi squad

    Sgarbossa was promoted from AHL Hershey to the taxi squad Tuesday.

    Sgarbossa has contributed two assists in five games with the Capitals during the pandemic-shortened season. With a logjam of centers ahead of him on the depth chart, the 28-year-old is expected to serve as a reserve option and therefore remains largely irrelevant for fantasy purposes.
