Capitals add players on first day of free agency, lose Mike Green to Red Wings @NHLdotcom

WASHINGTON - The Washington Capitals were busy on the opening day of NHL free agency on Wednesday.

But the biggest move was veteran defenceman Mike Green agreeing to a three-year deal with the Detroit Red Wings. He departs after 10 seasons with Washington, the team that drafted him in the first round in 2004.

Defenceman Taylor Chorney signed a one-year $700,000 contract with Washington. He's had seven points (one goal, six assists) and 16 penalty minutes in 68 games with Edmonton, St. Louis and Pittsburgh. The 28-year-old appeared in seven games with the Penguins last season.

Forwards Carter Camper and Sean Collins, and defencemen Mike Moore and Aaron Ness signed one-year, two-way contracts with the Capitals.

In addition, Washington re-signed forward Stanislav Galiev to a two-year contract.
