Wojtek Wolski signs one-year contract with the Washington Capitals

WASHINGTON - The Washington Capitals have signed free-agent forward Wojtek Wolski to a one-year deal worth US$600,000.

The winger split last season with the Florida Panthers and New York Rangers, recording four goals and five assists in 31 games.

The 26-year-old has collected 95 goals and 163 assists in 424 career games with Colorado, Phoenix, Florida and the Rangers.

A star forward with the Ontario Hockey League's Brampton Battalion, Wolski was drafted 21st overall by the Avalanche in 2006.

Wolski, who became an unrestricted free agent July 1, was dealt to Florida by the Rangers just before the trade deadline at the end of February.

Quote of the Day

He seemed to thrive on his own and didn't really need any push from me. I certainly don't want to get in the way of the coaches. You see how that goes sometimes. I never really worried about it and just enjoyed the ride.
