Connolly (undisclosed) is expected to play in the Panthers season opener.

Connolly returned to Panthers practice on Monday and head coach Joel Quenneville said that “it looks like he’s going to be more than ready for opening night.” Connolly is set to play a top-6 role with his new team, skating on the second line with Vincent Trocheck and Mike Hoffman. That should set him up for a career-high in ice-time and should allow him to be at least a 20-20 player again in 2020.

The Capitals have signed Brett Connolly to a one-year deal worth $850K.

Connolly, 24, had excellent AHL numbers in 2013-14, but has yet to really cash in at the NHL level. He had nine goals and 16 assists (25 points) in 71 games with the Bruins last season. Connolly has strong possession numbers and should fit in well with the Capitals as a bottom-6 forward.

Connolly expected to move to the Bruins’ top line on Monday.

Brad Marchand sufferd a concussion on Saturday night and is out indefinitely. Marchand’s injury leaves a hole on the Bruins’ top line, which Connolly filled in Sunday’s practice. Connolly has no points and a minus-4 rating through the first two games of the season.

He has a big frame at 6-foot-2 and he has been a proven goal scorer at all levels and tallied 12 goals and three assists (15) in 50 games usually in a bottom-6 role in Tampa Bay. He is a restricted free agent in the offseason.
