Kuznetsov will not face suspension for his appearance in a social media video that surfaced Monday which shows him sitting in front of several lines of an unidentified white powder.
Kuznetsov released the following statement Friday: "I would like to address the video of me that appeared online on Monday. While I have never taken illegal drugs in my life and career, I would like to publicly apologize to the Capitals, my teammates, our fans and everyone else, for putting myself in a bad situation. This was a hard lesson for me to learn." The NHL considers the matter formally closed, so Kuznetsov and the Capitals can now focus on putting this unfortunate incident behind them.
