Report: Jeff Schultz Re-Signs With Capitals For Four Years, $11 Million

Last year, Jeff Schultz emerged on the scene as one of the better defensemen in hockey, as he finished first in the NHL in plus/minus rating. Knowing this, it only made sense that the Capitals wanted to keep him around for the long term.

It appears the Capitals have achieved their goal. According to Ryan Rishaug of TSN, the Capitals have agreed to a four-year, $11 million contract with Schultz.

11million over 4yrs for jeff schultz in washington.. Nice deal for schultz and the titan boys    

Had he not signed this contract, Schultz and the Capitals would have headed to arbitration. Instead, the Capitals will keep him at a bargain price, considering his age and accolades.
