Agent: Crabb done in Washington, didn’t work out for either party

Jun 6, 2013, 3:57 PM EDT


Former Alex Ovechkin linemate Joey Crabb won’t be back with the Capitals in 2013-14, according to the Washington Post.

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.

    If you can’t score on a line with Ovechkin, you don’t deserve to be resigned.

      Shouldn’t have asked for too much $$ out of Toronto. The guy is a pretty solid 4th liner with a slight offensive upside. He’ll get a deal but needs to have the right price tag.

    let’s just restate that. ovechkin….. jay beagle and joey crab. no wonder ovi wasnt scoring goals. give him backs from all season the man could have gotten 40. but who cares they flop when it matters. he’s more in a rush to get back to Russia than to get back to his own end…..

    No wonder Ovechkin is so aloof. They surround him with players of Crabb’s caliber…
