NHL Free Agency: Capitals Re-Sign Goalie Dany Sabourin To A One-Year Deal

The Washington Capitals have re-signed veteran goaltender Dany Sabourin to a one-year deal according to a press release by the team. Sabourin backed up starting goaltender Braden Holtby for the first four games of the Stanley Cup Playoffs when fellow goaltender Michal Neuvirth was injured.

He spent his entire season with the Hershey Bears of the AHL before being called up to the Capitals in the Stanley Cup Playoffs.

Sabourin, 31, went 18-12-5 with a 2.76 goals-against average and a .909 save percentage in 37 games with Hershey last season and posted a 3-2 record with a 3.19 goals-against average and a .882 save percentage in the Calder Cup playoffs.

Sabourin has been in the league since being drafted by the Calgary Flames in 1998. Since then, Sabourin has played games for Calgary, the Pittsburgh Penguins and the Vancouver Canucks, compiling a career record of 18-25-0-4 in 57 career games. He has a career GAA of 2.88 with a .898 save percentage.
