Capitals re-sign D Schultz to 4-year, $11M deal @NHLdotcom

WASHINGTON (AP) -Defenseman Jeff Schultz has agreed to a four-year, $11 million contract to remain with the Washington Capitals.

The deal was announced Wednesday afternoon.

The 24-year-old Schultz led the NHL last season with a plus-50 rating and had a team-high 129 blocked shots. He had three goals and career highs of 20 assists and 23 points in 73 games.

Schultz, the Capitals' first-round choice - 27th overall - in the 2004 entry draft, was a restricted free agent and had filed for salary arbitration prior to Monday's deadline.

Washington also signed defenseman Brian Fahey to a one-year contract and agreed to a two-year deal with left wing Kyle Greentree.
