2018-05-10 analysis On the bright side, it sounds like Aston-Reese's concussion is healing rather quickly. The rookie forward was absolutely blasted by Washington's Tom Wilson, resulting in Wilson being suspended for the last three games of the Capitals' second round series against Pittsburgh. There's no set timetable for his return at this time, but Aston-Reese should be ready prior to the 2018 preseason.

This was the second straight game Wilson took a high hit on a Penguins' player, with the first victim being blueliner Brian Dumoulin.

Carter Rowney is expected to slot into the lineup in his place, and it'll be interesting to see if the league decides to discipline Wilson.

2018-04-24 analysis Aston-Reese is currently filling a fourth-line role alongside Tom Kuhnhackl and Carter Rowney -- a group that will see limited minutes while being tasked with bringing a lot of energy and to dishing out some hits.

2018-03-28 analysis Aston-Reese -- who returned from a 13-game stint on the sidelines -- logged 11:36 of ice time, in which he dished out four hits and a pair of blocks. The Staten Island native will likely need to rejoin the top line with Sidney Crosby if he is going to consistently tally any points -- a role that was taken over by Jake Guentzel during Aston-Reese's absence.

2018-02-26 analysis These moves are fairly common on deadline day as teams ensure players are eligible for the AHL playoffs, and Aston-Reese is now qualified to participate.

2018-02-15 analysis While Aston-Reese's goal was a Kris Letang point shot that deflected in off his foot, it was a power-play tally, and for the second consecutive game, the rookie spent the bulk of his even-strength ice time with Sidney Crosby.
