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

The groove of being behind a bench is going to be interesting at first, but thank God we have a few exhibition games to get rid of those cobwebs. Overall the excitement of it all and the freshness and coming back refreshed, all those things are going to be assets. If [the players] come ready to give their best effort in practice and games, good things are going to happen. I'm always looking for results. It's not always on the scoreboard. It's winning and building something.
