Washington Capitals forward Dustin Penner is day-to-day with an upper-body injury and won't play Saturday against the New York Islanders, who see forward Michael Grabner return to the lineup.
The Capitals activated forward Aaron Volpatti off injured reserve to take the place of Penner, who has one goal and two assists in 14 games since being acquired from the Anaheim Ducks at the NHL Trade Deadline.
Grabner, who hasn't played since March 10 because of a concussion, will replace forward Johan Sundstrom in the lineup and skate on a line with Brock Nelson and Cal Clutterbuck.
Grabner has 12 goals and 25 points in 63 games and his three shorthanded goals are tied for fifth in the NHL.

Mikhail Grabovski - Nicklas Backstrom - Alex Ovechkin
Marcus Johansson - Evgeny Kuznetsov - Troy Brouwer
Jason Chimera - Eric Fehr - Joel Ward
Aaron Volpatti - Jay Beagle - Tom Wilson
Karl Alzner - John Carlson
