ARLINGTON, Va. (AP) -Left wing Quintin Lain has re-signed with the Washington Capitals.

Laing signed a one-year contract after playing in only one game with Washington last season. He tore his spleen in his only appearance after being recalled from the AHL's Hershey Bears.

After being sidelined for more than two months, Laing returned to the Bears and helped them win the AHL's Calder Cup.

Laing has one goal and six assists in 43 career NHL games.

Quote of the Day

Just the feel for the direction they were headed and what they're trying to do, it just felt that this is a really good thing for this organization. They've got the pieces. We can put something together and go on a run or two and be together for a while, and I'm really excited about that opportunity. The team we have here has an opportunity to win, and that's the most attractive thing.
