WASHINGTON, D.C. – The Washington Capitals have re-signed right wing Boyd Gordon to a two-year contract, vice president and general manager George McPhee announced today. In keeping with club policy, financial terms of the deal were not disclosed.

 
Gordon, 22, has played 66 games for the Capitals during parts of the past two NHL seasons, his first years as a professional, scoring one goal and adding six assists. Gordon averaged 5:06 of penalty killing time per game with the Capitals, second-best in the NHL. In 2005-06 he had five stints with Washington, totaling 25 games.
 
Appearing in all 21 playoff games for the 2006 Calder Cup champion Hershey Bears (AHL) last season, Gordon posted two goals and six assists for eight points. He tallied 16 goals and 22 assist for 38 points in 58 regular-season games with the Bears. Included in his 16 goals were seven power-play goals, two shorthanded goals and two game-winning goals. He was third on the team with a plus-9 in the regular season.
 
Gordon also represented Canada in the 2003 World Junior Championship, earning a silver medal with fellow Capital Steve Eminger.
