  • Devils' Brian Pinho: Moves on to New Jersey

    Pinho signed a one-year, two-way contract with the Devils on Wednesday, per CapFriendly.

    Pinho spent the last four years in the Capitals' organization. He had 17 points in 27 contests with AHL Hershey last year, but didn't appear in an NHL game. The 27-year-old forward will likely fill a similar forward depth role for the Devils, which means he's expected to play at AHL Utica for much of the campaign.

  • Capitals' Brian Pinho: On taxi squad

    Pinho (undisclosed) is practicing and traveling with the team while on the taxi squad, per CapFriendly.

    Pinho made his NHL debut back in January, but he hasn't taken the ice since then. He'll continue to fine-tune his craft with the big club. The 25-year-old could also be sent to the AHL to log more consistent playing time.

  • Capitals' Brian Pinho: Still not ready

    PInho (undisclosed) has been ruled out for Saturday's game versus the Rangers.

    Pinho will miss a 10th straight game. He's not a lineup fixture even when he's healthy, so there's a possibility he's simply a healthy scratch at this point.

    Pinho (undisclosed) won't suit up in Thursday's game against the Sabres, Tom Gulitti of NHL.com reports.

    Pinho will miss his ninth straight game due to the undisclosed issue, as he's still without a timetable for a return. The 25-year-old will get his next opportunity to suit up in Saturday's game against the Rangers.

  • Capitals' Brian Pinho: Remains out Tuesday

    Pinho (undisclosed) is not in the lineup Tuesday against Pittsburgh.

    Tuesday will mark the eighth straight game that Pinho sits out with his undisclosed issue. The 25-year-old rookie will need to wait until at least Thursday against Buffalo to try to earn his first NHL point, though there's a good chance he'll be a healthy scratch even once he's fully healthy.

  • Capitals' Brian Pinho: Still not ready

    Pinho (undisclosed) won't play in Sunday's game versus the Penguins, Mike Vogel of the Capitals' official site reports.

    Pinho has been skating in a regular jersey for nearly a week, but he'll remain out of the lineup for now. He's prone to be a healthy scratch anyway, so it's unclear when he'll dress again.

  • Capitals' Brian Pinho: Ditches non-contact sweater

    Pinho (undisclosed) practiced in a regular jersey Monday, Samantha Pell of The Washington Post reports.

    Even if fully fit, Pinho is far from a lock for the lineup. In his two appearances this year, the 25-year-old center recorded three shots, one hit and one block while averaging 7:49 of ice time.

  • Capitals' Brian Pinho: Still sidelined Sunday

    Pinho (undisclosed) won't suit up in Sunday's game against the Flyers, Tarik El-Bashir of The Athletic reports.

    Pinho returned to practice Monday while sporting a non-contact jersey, so he still without a definitive timetable for a return. The 25-year-old has averaged 7:49 of ice time and has gone pointless in his two games this season, so his absence won't affect much from a fantasy perspective.

  • Capitals' Brian Pinho: Sporting non-contact jersey

    Pinho (undisclosed) skated in a non-contact jersey after Monday's formal morning skate, Samantha Pell of The Washington Post reports.

    Pinho's return to the ice is an encouraging sign, but the lack of specifics regarding his injury makes forecasting a return rather challenging. The 174th overall pick from the 2013 NHL Entry Draft is a negligible fantasy asset even once he returns to full health given the nature of Washington's depth chart, unless of course Evgeny Kuznetsov (COVID-19 protocols) or Lars Eller (upper body) encounter setbacks in their respective recoveries.

  • Capitals' Brian Pinho: Dealing with undisclosed injury

    Pinho was limited to off-ice work Thursday with an undisclosed injury, Tom Gulitti of NHL.com reports.

    Pinho registered three shots, one hit and a minus-3 rating in his two appearances this season in which he logged 7:49 of ice time per game. Even once fully fit, the 25-year-old center will be hard-pressed to secure regular minutes and figures to be a fringe roster player for the Caps this season.

  • Capitals' Brian Pinho: No longer on active roster

    Pinho has been removed from the Capitals' active roster, Tom Gulitti of NHL.com reports.

    Washington has yet to release any details, but it's safe to assume Pinho has been reassigned to the taxi squad, where he began the season. The 25-year-old pivot has gone scoreless in two appearances with the big club this campaign.

  • Capitals' Brian Pinho: Joins active roster

    Pinho was added to the Capitals' active roster from the taxi squad Thursday, per TSN.

    Evgeny Kuznetsov (COVID-19 protocols) will miss Washington's next four games at a minimum, so Pinho will get a chance to center the Caps' fourth line for the foreseeable future. The 25-year-old American notched 20 goals and 17 assists in 62 AHL contests last campaign.

  • Capitals' Brian Pinho: Detailed to taxi squad

    Pinho has been assigned to Washington's taxi squad.

    Pinho will join Daniel Carr as the other forward on the Capitals' taxi squad to start the season. The 25-year-old had no points in two playoff games with the Capitals during the 2019-20 season and is not a relevant fantasy consideration.

  • Capitals' Brian Pinho: Inks two-year extension

    Pinho was signed to a two-year, $1.45 million extension on Thursday.

    Pinho tallied 20 goals and 37 points in 62 games with AHL Hershey during the 2019-20 campaign before making his NHL debut against the Islanders on Aug 16. The 25-year-old is expected to serve as a depth option and spend the balance of the 2020-21 season in the minors.
