Ovechkin recorded a power-play assist during Saturday's 3-1 win over the Wild.

EDGE Analysis

The 32-year-old Russian gave quite a scare when he left the ice in the second period, but was no worse for wear after posting his 20th point of the season. Fantasy owners are still looking for some consistency, but he does have five points in his last eight games -- along with a host of peripheral stats (29 shots, 21 hits) so keep him in your lineup every night.

Ovechkin (face) will return to Saturday's game against Minnesota after being forced to miss a majority of the second period.

EDGE Analysis

Ovechkin suffered the injury when an attempted cross-ice pass by Minnesota's Chris Stewart ramped up Ovi's stick and struck him in the face. Through two periods, Ovechkin has played nearly eight-and-a-half minutes and mustered a single shot on goal.

Ovechkin potted a goal on five shots in Tuesday's 3-1 loss to the Sabres.

EDGE Analysis

Ovechkin's equalizer with 2:16 to play in the second period pulled him within one goal of Nikita Kucherov's league-leading 14. The veteran sniper scored just once in an eight-game stretch after lighting the lamp nine times in the season's first five contests, but he's heating back up with goals in three consecutive appearances.

Ovechkin picked up his 11th goal of the season in Saturday's 3-2 win over the Bruins.

EDGE Analysis

The 32-year-old winger rocketed a one-timer past Bruins goaltender Tuukka Rask midway through the first period. The Caps captain should challenge for the Maurice "Rocket" Richard Trophy again in 2017-18, so keep him in your lineup.

Ovechkin had a trio of assists and a plus-4 rating in Saturday's 5-2 comeback win over the Oilers.

EDGE Analysis

The effort helps the Caps captain round out his offensive resume as he had just two helpers in the first 10 games of the season. Firing on all cylinders alongside Evgeny Kuznetsov, the 32-year-old power forward is still a must-start every night -- just as he has been for more than a decade.

Ovechkin had an assist and three shots in Thursday's 6-2 loss to the Canucks.

EDGE Analysis

The "Great 8" now has 10 goals and 12 points in the first 10 games of 2017-18. Despite the glowing totals, he has just two points and a minus-8 rating over his last five outings. He's still a reliable multi-category performer and should break out of this slump in short order, so keep playing him as you normally would.

Ovechkin said it was merely a bruise that he sustained in Monday's practice, adding that "it was nothing serious," Isabelle Khurshudyan of The Washington Post reports.

EDGE Analysis

Fear not, Ovi fans -- your stud winger should be all systems go for Thursday's road date with the Canucks. He's currently knotted up with Tampa Bay's Nikita Kucherov for a league-best 10 goals in nine games, though his fellow countryman has five assists over him with a total of six on the young season.

Ovechkin is expected to be fine after getting tangled up at practice Monday, Isabelle Khurshudyan of The Washington Post reports.

EDGE Analysis

Despite declaring that Ovechkin is going to be okay, coach Barry Trotz left the door open by saying that he wanted to talk to the trainer for more information. The Caps are off until Thursday, which is plenty of time for the winger to heal up from what seems to be a minor injury, but the team should provide an update on game day, if not sooner.

Ovechkin scored the game-winning goal in overtime and recorded seven shots during Friday's 4-3 win against Detroit.

EDGE Analysis

Make it 10 goals through eight games for Ovechkin. It's an encouraging start for No. 8, as he finished with just 33 tallies in 2016-17. As the go-to shooter on the dangerous No. 1 power-play unit, and it wouldn't be surprising if Ovechkin bounced back in a big way this year.
