Yesterday at Verizon Center


A pair of Caps prospects are playing well for HC Lokomotiv of the Russian Super League. Goaltender Simeon Varlamov, a first-round pick (No. 23 overall) in June, has stopped 71 of 74 shots in his last three starts, including a 24-save shutout on Feb. 17.

Center Ivan Nepriayev, the team’s fifth-round selection (No. 163 overall) in the 2000 draft, has 14 goals and eight assists in 46 games.


“Maybe the kid has just said, ‘Hey look I’ve had enough of getting called up and being in awe of every thing that is going on. I am tired of riding the bus here and maybe it is time for me the make the next step.’”
