Capitals Free Agency 2012: Washington Re-Signs Zach Hamill

The Washington Capitals announced a minor, but not insignificant free agent move on Wednesday morning. The team re-signed center Zach Hamill to a one-year deal for the 2012-2013 season.

Just 23-years-old, Hamill was a first-round pick by the Boston Bruins in the 2007 NHL Draft. He was acquired by Washington on May 26, 2012, in the Chris Bourque trade. He won the Bobby Clarke Trophy in 2006-2007 for recording the most points in the Western Hockey League in 2006-2007.

Last season, Hamill had eight goals and 13 assists in 41 games with the Providence Bruins of the AHL. In 256 career AHL games, Hamill has recorded 44 goals and 139 points. He has played in 20 career NHL games, picking up four assists in that span.
