Washington Capitals forward Connor Brown has had successful ACL surgery on his right knee. Sadly, Brown tore his ACL in a game against Vancouver mid-October. Brown was checked into the side boards and fell awkwardly and his knee was caught behind him.

He immediately went to the locker room and did not return. This is a tough break for Brown and for the Capitals. Brown's season is most likely over as ACL surgeries take a long time to recover from.
Returning from major knee surgery can be difficult to overcome. Brown is an unrestricted free agent after this season so it is unknown if he will return with the Capitals. Brown brings a physical presence to the lineup and his style of play and ability chip in offensively will be missed by Washington.

Washington already has a multitude of injuries their dealing with. Nicklas Backstrom, Carl Hagelin and Tom Wilson are already on injured reserve. Connor Brown was supposed to help ease the loss of Tom Wilson who also had his own ACL injury in last year's Stanley Cup playoffs. The injuries don't stop there. John Carlson and TJ Oshie are expected miss some time due to injury as well. It's safe to say the injury bug is hitting the Capitals hard.
