Orlov (wrist) will not enter the lineup Saturday against the Rangers, Alex Prewitt of the Washington Post reports.

With the Capitals having already secured a playoff spot heading into Saturday's season finale, there was some belief that Orlov might finally get a chance to play after missing the entire season while recovering from wrist surgery. However, since the Capitals are still trying to hold off the Islanders for second place in the Metropolitan Division, it appears coach Barry Trotz will stick with his usual lineup defensively, preventing Orlov from getting a chance to play. Though he's now healthy, Orlov won't be eligible to play during the postseason and will have to turn his sights toward next season before entering the fold again.

Head coach Barry Trotz said he would like to get Orlov (wrist) into a game, but is not certain they will do so in the remaining two regular season games, Chuck Gormley of CSN Washington reports.

Orlov has been recalled to the NHL ranks after a brief conditioning assignment with AHL Hershey. Unfortunately for him, the Capitals are fully healthy on the defensive side of their roster and are hoping to secure home ice in the first round of the playoffs, so the time may not be opportune to give the Russian blueliner, who has missed all season recovering from a wrist injury, his first NHL action in almost a year. However, if healthy, Orlov remains a sleeper candidate in deeper leagues next season.
