    Snively scored a goal on his lone shot in Thursday's 5-4 overtime loss to the Devils.

The Virginia native bounced between the Capitals and AHL Hershey this year, tallying two goals and four points in 12 games at the NHL level.

    Snively has played in just eight games for the Caps this season in which he garnered one goal, two assists and 13 shots while averaging 11:48 of ice time. Snively's promotion could be an indication that Sonny Milano (illness) won't be ready to face the Rangers on Tuesday.

  • Capitals' Joe Snively: Two points in losing effort

    Snively scored his first goal of the season and added an assist in Tuesday's 3-2 loss to the Hurricanes.

    In his first NHL action since Dec. 31, Snively gave the Caps a spark in the absence of Alex Ovechkin (personal), but it wasn't enough to get his team a win. It's not clear when Ovie might be back with the club, but the 27-year-old Snively figures to fill a depth role on the wing until then.

  • Capitals' Joe Snively: Summoned by parent club

    Snively was recalled by the Capitals on Tuesday, Tom Gulitti of NHL.com reports.

    Although Snively's been promoted, he isn't expected to draw into the lineup against the Hurricanes on Tuesday. He's picked up one helper through six top-level appearances this year.

    Snively has one assist, 10 shots on goal, four blocks and three hits in six appearances with the Capitals this season. He will be sent to AHL Hershey if he clears because Washington is poised to welcome back Nicklas Backstrom (hip) and Tom Wilson (knee) to the lineup Sunday versus Columbus.

  • Capitals' Joe Snively: Can't crack lineup

    Snively has been a healthy scratch for 15 straight games this season.

    Snively has appeared in just five contests for the Capitals this year in which he recorded one assist, nine shots and two hits in 11:56 of ice time per game. Even with the heavy injury list for Washington, Snively hasn't been able to get onto the ice. Once Nicklas Backstrom (hip) and Tom Wilson (knee) are back in the lineup, Snively will likely find himself headed to the minors.

  • Capitals' Joe Snively: Clear of wrist injury

    Snively (wrist) is listed as healthy on the Capitals' training camp roster.

    Snively didn't play with the Capitals after the start of March, though he did serve a conditioning stint with AHL Hershey. The 26-year-old made his debut last year and logged seven points in 12 contests, so he should be in the mix for a bottom-six role in camp.

  • Capitals' Joe Snively: Recalled from conditioning stint

    Snively (wrist) was recalled from AHL Hershey prior to Friday's Game 6 against the Panthers, per Tom Gulitti of NHL.com

    Snively hasn't played in an NHL game since Feb. 28 due to a wrist injury. Prior to that, the 26-year-old winger logged four goals and three assists in a bottom-six role. Snively is likely to serve as a depth option for the Capitals moving forward.

  • Capitals' Joe Snively: Headed down for conditioning stint

    Snively (wrist) was sent to AHL Hershey on a long-term conditioning assignment Wednesday.

    At this point, Snively probably shouldn't be expected to play any more games at the NHL level. It was a strong start to the 26-year-o,d winger's NHL career, as he managed four goals and three helpers in 12 appearances for the Caps. If he can stay healthy, Snively could be in the mix for a spot on the 23-man roster heading into the 2022-23 campaign.

  • Capitals' Joe Snively: Re-ups with team

    Snively (wrist) agreed to terms on a two-year, $1.6 million deal with Washington on Wednesday.

    Snively has been dealing with a wrist injury that is expected to sideline him until mid-April. Despite the injury, the 26-year-old winger appears to have shown team brass enough to warrant a new contract that will see him likely transition to a full-time NHL roster spot next year.

  • Capitals' Joe Snively: Shifted to LTIR

    Snively (wrist) was moved to long-term injured reserve Tuesday, per CapFriendly.

    Snively was already expected to be out of action until mid-April at the earliest, so the change in status won't impact when he can be activated to play. With Lars Eller (COVID-19 protocols) also unavailable, Washington needed the extra cap space to bring Mike Vecchione up from the minors. Prior to getting hurt, Snively was rolling with four goals and three assists in 12 games and was certainly making his case for a full-time NHL roster spot heading into the 2022-23 campaign.

  • Capitals' Joe Snively: Considered week-to-week

    Snively (upper body) is considered "week-to-week" with an upper-body injury, Tarik El-Bashir of The Athletic reports.

    Snively has been dealing with the injury in recent days and is now expected to be out for the foreseeable future. The 26-year-old got his NHL career off to a hot start with four goals and seven points in 12 games prior to the injury, and with Anthony Mantha (shoulder) nearing a return, it's not clear if there will be an NHL role available to Snively once he heals up.
