Perreault signs two-year extension with Capitals

Center Mathieu Perreault has signed a two-year contract extension with the Washington Capitals, the team announced Thursday.

The deal reportedly is worth $2.1 million.

The 24-year-old had 16 goals and 14 assists in 64 games -- all career highs -- last season. He was a plus-9 and had four game-winning goals.

In 120 career games -- all with Washington -- he has 27 goals, 26 assists and is a plus-10.

Perreault was selected by the Capitals in the sixth round (No. 177) of the 2006 NHL Draft. He won back-to-back Calder Cup championships with Hershey of the American Hockey League in 2009 and 2010.

Quote of the Day

I've got a lot of experience and there's a lot of young guys. It's even making me excited a little more. It's kind of a new life. At my age, I feel like I know a lot of things what to do, but I just cannot do it anymore. It's a lot easier to tell them what to do because they've still got the legs and hands to do it. I just know things, but I cannot do them anymore.
