Washington Capitals Star Evgeny Kuznetsov Healthy Scratched for a Mental Reset Tonight

In a surprising turn of events, Washington Capitals star Evgeny Kuznetsov has been shockingly healthy scratched for an unsual reason.

#Capitals 🇺🇸 forward Evgeny Kuznetsov 🇷🇺 will be a healthy scratch tonight against Arizona for a "mental reset."

Kuznetsov, 31, has four goals, nine points in 19 games played with Washington this season.




The Capitals made the announcement, stating that it isn't a mental health reset but rather a healthy scratch. Unlike the load management reasoning often seen in the NBA, this decision adds a unique twist to player management in the NHL.


Kuznetsov, who has had a slower start this season with just 9 points in 19 games, will be sitting out tonight's game. The team is hoping that this break will provide him with the opportunity to reset and potentially improve his performance moving forward.



Stay tuned to see how this unexpected healthy scratch impacts Kuznetsov's form and whether this approach becomes a trend in the NHL.
