Vrana signs entry-level contract with Capitals
Jakub Vrana, the Washington Capitals' 2014 first-round pick, signed a three-year, entry-level contract Tuesday. Financial terms were not released.

Jakub Vrana, the Washington Capitals' 2014 first-round pick, signed a three-year, entry-level contract Tuesday. He'll make $832,500 per season if he's in the NHL, $70,000 per season if he's in the American Hockey League.

Vrana, the 13th pick of the draft in June, had two goals and one assist in 24 games with Linkoping in the Swedish Hockey League last season, and 25 points in 24 games with Linkoping's team in Sweden's junior league. Vrana also had 10 points in seven games to help his native Czech Republic win the silver medal at the 2014 IIHF World Under-18 Championship. He also played for the Czechs at the 2014 IIHF World Junior Championship.

The 5-foot-11, 185-pound left wing will take part in training camp but likely will return to Linkoping this season.

Quote of the Day

I would definitely love to play with him. He's a skilled player and over the years he definitely has shown that he can score a lot of goals. I think it would work out well.
