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]

He represents Russia in international competitions, winning gold medals at the 2011 World Junior Ice Hockey Championships and the 2014 IIHF World Championship. In 2018, Orlov won the Stanley Cup with the Capitals, defeating the Vegas Golden Knights in the finals.

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.

Orlov suffered a broken wrist during the 2014 IIHF World Championship and endured several setbacks in his recovery which forced him to miss the entire 2014–15 NHL season.[10]

On 30 June 2017, Orlov signed a six-year, $30.6 million contract extension with the Capitals.[11]
