The Washington Capitals will once again be without Martin Fehervary on Saturday, but they’ll still receive some help off of the injured report, head coach Spencer Carbery said Friday.

Fellow defenseman Trevor van Riemsdyk will return to the ice after missing the last four games. He was sidelined after he awkwardly went into the boards on Nov. 4, forcing the Capitals to scrape the bottom of the barrel to round out their blue line.

Winger Anthony Mantha will also return, providing a jolt offensively after missing the last three games. He suffered a ruptured eardrum on Nov. 8 when he was struck by a deflected shot.

The Capitals will host the Blue Jackets at Capital One Arena on Saturday, with puck drop scheduled for 7:30 p.m.
