Defenseman Jamie Heward (facial lacerations) says he expects to be ready to play Friday, but whether he actually returns to the lineup against the Thrashers will be up to Coach Glen Hanlon and the training staff.
Right wing Richard Zednik (groin) hasn't been seen (at least by me) since he went down on Dec. 2 against Buffalo. I mean, usually when a player is injured, I'll bump into him at the rink, the parking garage, somewhere. I haven't seen Zed since he left the ice with the help of a teammate and trainer. Not sure what that means.
When asked about Zednik's whereabouts, Hanlon deferred to a team spokesman, who left a message for General Manager George McPhee. Hopefully, I'll have an update tomorrow. Maybe not. As you may have noticed, the Capitals don't like discussing injuries.
Meantime, winger Matt Bradley (hand) practiced yesterday and seems sufficiently healed.
