NHL: Long-term absence for Washington Capitals forward Connor Brown

The Washington Capitals announced on Wednesday that forward Connor Brown has been placed on injured reserve with a lower body injury.

The team mentioned that he will be out for the long term and may need surgery.

Brown, 28, left the Capitals’ win over the Vancouver Canucks early Monday. He took a hit from defenseman Noah Juulsen down the ramp and Brown appeared to hold his right leg as he left the rink for the locker room.

The striker has been shut out in four games so far this season. Brown was acquired by the Caps in a trade with the Ottawa Senators and is in the final year of a three-year contract. In 448 career games, Brown has amassed 90 goals and 126 assists.

The Capitals also announced that Carl Hagelin’s name has been moved from the injured list to the long-term injured list. Hagelin continues his rehabilitation after undergoing hip surgery in the offseason.
