Capitals Sign Matthew Ford, Ryan Potulny

As Free Agent Frenzy Friday continued to churn out notable signing after notable signing, including two by the Caps (see below), Washington made two more minor moves around 3 P.M. EST.

The first move saw the Capitals sign center Ryan Potulny to a two-year contract.  The second year of the contract is one-way at $525K, while the first is two-way contract at $525K/$105K.  Potulny, 26, was a centerpiece of the AHL Calder Cup champion Binghamton Senators and will serve as organization depth, it seems.

The second move saw the Capitals sign center Matthew Ford to what is believed to be a one-year, two-way deal; financial terms of the contract are not disclosed at this time.  Ford, also 26, played last season with the Lake Erie Monsters and he, too, seems like organizational depth.

Both players are expected to start the year in Hershey of the American Hockey League.
