News: Laich scored his first goal of the 2015-16 season during Thursday's 4-1 over the Bruins
Impact: The puck was deflected off Laich's leg into the net, so it was a "garbage goal" in the traditional sense, but the fourth-line forward won't care how it happened. The tally brings his point total to one in 12 games this season, so he's not enough of an offensive force at this point to warrant fantasy consideration.

News: Laich assisted on Tom Wilson's goal during Washington's 2-0 win over Carolina on Monday.
Impact: Moved back to center to start preseason, Laich is building some chemistry with Tom Wilson and Jason Chimera in what is likely to be Washington's third line to start the season. Battling a series of injuries over the last few seasons, Laich's days as a 20-goal scoring, top-six forward are clearly behind him. While he should settle in as a serviceable checking-line forward for the Capitals, he isn't likely to have much fantasy value outside very deep leagues in 2015-2016.
