Dmitry Vladimirovich Orlov (Russian: Дмитрий Владимирович Орлов; born 23 July 1991) is a Russian professional ice hockey defenceman currently playing for the Washington Capitals of the National Hockey League (NHL).[1]

Playing career[edit]

Orlov was drafted by the Washington Capitals in the second round, 55th overall, in the 2009 NHL Entry Draft.[2] He represented Russia at the 2010 and 2011 World Junior Championships, getting named to the 2011 Tournament All-Star Team and winning the 2011 gold medal.[3]

Orlov made his North American professional debut with the Hershey Bears, the American Hockey League (AHL) affiliate of the Capitals, on 26 February 2011, in a 4–3 win over the Albany Devils. He registered an assist in his debut.[4]

Orlov scored his first North American professional goal in a 3–2 Hershey loss to the Worcester Sharks on 9 March 2011.[5]

Orlov signed a three-year entry-level contract with the Capitals on 2 March 2011.[6]

The Capitals recalled Orlov from Hershey on 20 November 2011,[7] and Orlov made his NHL debut on 21 November 2011, against the Phoenix Coyotes.[8]

Orlov scored his first career NHL goal on 15 January 2012, against Cam Ward of the Carolina Hurricanes.[9] It was also the game-winning goal in a 2–1 Capitals victory.

As a result of the 2012–13 NHL lockout, Orlov was assigned directly to the Hershey Bears to start the 2012–13 season. Upon a resolution to the lockout, Orlov was recalled and attended the Capitals training camp for the shortened 2012–13 season.
