Crabb’s agent, Kevin Epp, told the Post that Crabb “has no intentions to sign back with the Capitals,” adding that “I don’t think it worked out for either party.”
Crabb, 30, inked a one-year, one-way deal worth $950,000 last summer after a solid 2011-12 campaign in Toronto, where he notched career highs in goals (11), assists (15) and points (26).
The former Colorado College standout got some quality opportunities in Washington — in late January, he was playing with Ovechkin and Jay Beagle — but eventually faded out of Adam Oates’ plans entirely.
Crabb didn’t play in a single regular-season contest after Mar. 17 and didn’t appear in any of Washington’s seven opening-round playoff games against the Rangers.
