AP Hockey Writer

ARLINGTON, Va. (AP) — Washington Capitals winger Carl Hagelin is expected to miss an extended period of time with what the team is calling a serious eye injury. Hagelin was struck in the left eye with an errant stick during practice Tuesday. General manager Brian MacLellan said Hagelin had one surgery and doctors are evaluating further steps. Forward Joe Snively is also considered week to week with an upper-body injury. Goaltender Ilya Samsonov is being evaluated after taking a shot up high in practice Wednesday. The Capitals could be getting winger Anthony Mantha back after missing the past four months recovering from shoulder surgery.
