      Kuznetsov (personal) will be away from the team for an indefinite period to receive care from the Players Assistance Program.

      Kuznetsov was absent from the Capitals' team practice Monday due to personal reasons and has announced that he will be away from the team for an indefinite period to receive care from the Players Assistance Program. The 31-year-old center has struggled offensively in 2023-24 as he is on pace for career lows in almost all categories after only collecting six goals, 17 points and 69 SOG in 43 games played before he stepped away.
