Matt Niskanen was looking pretty happy to be skating with his teammates on Wednesday. He seemed none the worse for wear and coach indicated in the post-practice presser that if everything checks out, Nisky will be skating on Thursday.
Niskanen is certainly one of Coach Trotz’ favorite players He has repeatedly spoken about his consistency on the ice. Niskanen leaves quite the void when he isn’t playing and the Caps need his kind of workmanship back. Matt has nine assists this season, second only to Nick Backstrom with 14.
