Vogel's Take: Eight-Year Extension Keeps Oshie in DC

Caps re-sign right wing T.J. Oshie for maximum allowable term, an eight-year deal worth a total of $46 million.

by Mike Vogel @VogsCaps / WashingtonCaps.com

Rather than waiting to see how much salary cap space they would have remaining after signing one or more of a handful of impending restricted free agents, the Caps made a pre-emptive strike on Friday just hours ahead of the 2017 NHL Draft. Washington signed right wing T.J. Oshie to an eight-year contract extension worth a total of $46 million. The pact puts an annual salary cap hit of $5.75 million next to Oshie's name for the next eight seasons.

by Mike Vogel @VogsCaps / Monumental Sports Network

Several talent-laden NHL clubs, including the Washington Capitals, went into this week's NHL expansion draft with worries of losing a pretty good hockey player, one they'd prefer not to lose.

Some of those moves involved giving up high-end prospects or first-round draft picks in order to shift Vegas away from drafting certain players.
