News: Erskien (upper body) was placed on injured reserve Wednesday, Alex Prewitt of the Washington Post reports. Impact: The Capitals ruled Erskine out of the entirety of their three-game road trip to western Canada earlier this week, so the IR move will allow the team to add another defenseman from the minors for depth purposes, if they choose to do so. Erskine had been a healthy scratch for the Capitals in every game even before succumbing to the injury.(RotoWire, )

News: Erskine, who was placed on injured reserve earlier Wednesday, underwent surgery to repair a disk in his neck. Impact: The procedure will require Erskine to begin a rehab program within the next few weeks, suggesting that he's not close to returning to action anytime soon. He could be a candidate for long-term injured reserve if his recovery ends up stretching into the second half of the season.(RotoWire, )

News: Erskine has an upper-body injury and will not join the Capitals for their three-game road trip beginning Wednesday. Impact: Erskine has been a healthy scratch all season for the Capitals, so it seems likely that he sustained the injury at some point during a recent practice. Since he hasn't been playing regularly for the Capitals anyway, his unavailability for the road trip shouldn't have an impact on coach Barry Trotz's lineup decisions.(RotoWire, )
