Due to the Kuemper family welcoming their new baby boy to the world, another player got an opportunity to suit up. Charlie Lindgren got the start while the backup ended up being Clay Stevenson.

The Capitals could see big changes to their lineup for the season opener against the Penguins, as Darcy Kuemper's status is up in the air after he and his wife welcomed a baby boy overnight.

Everything to know about the lineup so far:


Stevenson last season played 3 games in the AHL and 36 games in the ECHL. Now he is getting to live out his NHL dream even if it is in a backup capacity. The Capitals take on the Penguins in their opener.
