Powe accidently skated into the Capitals' Matt Hendrix, causing an ugly collision that had Powe flipped onto his head. He was diagnosed with a concussion on the play, and his presence in the lineup was sorely missed.
Powe is a vital part of the team's penalty kill and he is also a great forechecker on the fourth line. His grit was missed during the team's current three-game losing streak, and they can't wait to get him back.
Luckily, he was a full participant in practice today, meaning he was also cleared for contact. As a result, rookie skater Christian Thomas, who made his NHL debut Saturday in Montreal — was reassigned to the Connecticut Whale of the AHL.
Although he said he said he's not sure about being cleared to play, expect Powe in the lineup tomorrow against the Winnipeg Jets.
