Free Agent Defensemen Willie Mitchell Spurns Capitals, Signs With Los Angeles Kings

Needing another defensemen, the Capitals had their sights set on Willie Mitchell, a veteran free agent that hadn't been signed because of injury concerns. However, they'll have to look elsewhere, as Mitchell ultimately has decided to sign with the Los Angeles Kings.

Mitchell's contract is reportedly for two years and $3.5 million, according to KingsCast. That would have been a high price to pay for the Capitals, so maybe it's best they passed on him.
