Washington Capitals Free Agent Tracker: Caps make 2nd move, sign Gordon

The Washington Capitals announced yesterday that they re-signed restricted free agent Boyd Gordon to a one-year, $800,000 contract. Gordon, 26, did not file for salary arbitration with other RFA’s Tomas Fleishmann, Jeff Schultz, and Eric Fehr.

Gordo is the longest tenured member of the Capitals roster, having been selected in the first-round of the 2002 draft (17th overall). He had four goals and six assists in 36 games last season, a year which was plagued by habitual back injuries. A strong face-off man that can play center and right wing, BG finds most of his playing time on the fourth line. He’s also the recent topic of a heated debate.

Make the jump to take a look at the rest of the Capitals’ free agent class as we stand one week into Free Agency.
