Washington Capitals Injuries: Jason Arnott Will Miss Upcoming Road Trip, Listed As Week-To-Week

Since the Capitals acquired him at the trade deadline, Jason Arnott has made a pretty significant impact on the Capitals. But according to CSN Wasington, the Capitals will have to be without their newest pivot for the entirety of the upcoming road trip.

According to the Washington Capitals’ website center Jason Arnott will not travel with the team this week after suffering an undisclosed injury.  The veteran Arnott is listed as week-to-week.

One would have to imagine that a week-to-week injury is more significant than a day-to-day, but the discretion in hockey injury reports always leaves me guessing. Arnott was coming in handy with Nicklas Bakstrom recovering from his broken thumb, but now the Capitals depth at the position is going to be a serious concern.

The Capitals play the Canadiens tonight, and will face the Red Wings, Devils, Flyers and Senators before wrapping up their road trip against these same Canadiens next Saturday. No word yet on if Arnott will be able to return for any of these games, but it does not look likely.
