The Washington Capitals are now officially ready to start the season.
The team announced they’ve re-signed restricted free agent forward Marcus Johansson to a two-year, $4 million deal. He was the final player the Caps had to get inked to a deal before the start of training camp.
Johansson has emerged as a key player for the Caps as he found a home on the left wing of the first line alongside Nicklas Backstrom and Alexander Ovechkin. That trio got things going when Ovechkin found his stride midway through the year on his way to a MVP-winning season. Johansson finished the year with six goals and 22 points.
This season, he’ll break camp hoping to keep his spot on that top line while also upping his offensive output.
