BREAKING: Capitals release statement regarding Evgeny Kuznetsov's incriminating video

The Washington Capitals and Evgeny Kuznetsov have released the following statements regarding an incriminating video that's been circulating on social media.

In addition to doing our own due diligence, we met with Evgeny to discuss the video circulated on social media. While we are disappointed by his presence in the video, we accept his explanation and apology for putting himself in an unfortunate situation. Evgeny has been a terrific player and an active member of our community, and we expect him to learn from this experience and uphold both the standards the organization has for him as well as his own, the Capitals stated. 
The video in question shows Kuznetsov sitting behind a table with two lines of white powder in front of him, believed to be cocaine.
I would like to address the video of me that appeared online on Monday, Kuznetsov told the media. 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. 
A wrong time, wrong place for Kuzy. Mistakes are part of being human and hopefully, we learn from our mistakes.
