Capitals Re-Sign Goaltender Frederic Cassivi

by Staff Writer / Washington Capitals
HERSHEY, Pa. – The Washington Capitals have re-signed free agent goaltender Frederic Cassivi, vice president and general manager George McPhee, in conjunction with Hershey Bears president and general manager Doug Yingst, announced today. In keeping with club policy, financial terms of the deal were not disclosed.  

 
“Number one priority for the Bears this summer was signing Frederic, and today that priority came to fruition,” said Yingst.
 
Cassivi, 31, led Hershey to their ninth Calder Cup championship in 2006 and won the Jack A. Butterfield trophy as the most valuable player in the 2006 playoffs. He also became the first Bear to register 30 or more wins in a season since J.F. Labbe in 1996-97. In Cassivi’s second stint with Hershey he registered 34 regular season wins and added 16 Calder Cup playoff wins to become the first Bears goaltender to register 50 wins in one campaign.
 
“This is the place I call home and for me there isn’t any other place I would want to play outside of the NHL,” said Cassivi.  “The fan support in Hershey has always been terrific and they stepped it up a notch in the playoffs to help bring the Calder Cup home.  This organization has a commitment to winning that I want to carry on.”
 
A 6’4”, 220-pound native of Sorel, Que., Cassivi was Ottawa’s ninth-round pick, 210th overall, in the 1994 Entry Draft. He appeared in one game for the Capitals in 2005-06, stopping 26 of 30 shots Nov. 11, 2005 against the New Jersey Devils.
