ARLINGTON, Va. (AP) -Forward Tomas Fleischmann has re-signed with the Washington Capitals, getting a $2.6 million, one-year contract.

The 26-year-old Fleischmann set career highs with 23 goals and 28 assists last season for the Presidents' Trophy winners, despite missing the first 11 games because of deep vein thrombosis in his leg.

He has 56 goals and 72 assists in five NHL seasons, all with Washington.

The team announced his signing Tuesday.

Quote of the Day

I'm just excited about the opportunity. I've been on the ice earlier than usual and in the weight room, pushing around a little more weights than usual. Every day I go into a workout with a smile on my face and ready to go. When you do have a little more responsibility, you want to take your lunch pail and get ready to work.
