Capitals sign Hanson to two-way contract
The Washington Capitals signed center Christian Hanson to a one-year, two-way contract Monday.

Hanson, 25, was most recently a member of the Toronto Maple Leafs. He played six games with the Leafs last season and a total of 42 over parts of the past three seasons, registering 3 goals and 6 assists. In 58 games with the AHL's Toronto Marlies last season, Hanson had 13 goals and 21 assists. He will likely see most of his playing time this season with the Capitals' AHL affiliate, the Hershey Bears.

Hanson is a Glen Falls, N.Y., native who played four seasons at Notre Dame.
Quote of the Day

If you want to prove people wrong, you've just got to go out and do it. Yeah, we blew 3-2 series leads the last two years, but no one is going remember that if we go out there on Saturday night and beat these guys and go play in the Stanley Cup Final. We need to get back to work and we'll start to do that tomorrow.
