Capitals 2012 Free Agency: Washington Signs Winger Joey Crabb

The Washington Capitals announced on Monday that the team has signed right winger Joey Crabb to a one-year deal. Financial terms of the contract were not revealed by the team. Darren Dreger of TSN reported that the deal was worth $950,000.

Crabb played 67 games with the Toronto Maple Leafs last season. The 29-year-old recorded 11 goals, 15 assists and 26 points, all representing career highs. Four of his goals were game-winners, which tied him for the second most on the Maple Leafs. Versatility is what makes Crabb an appealing addition for the Capitals. He also spent time on the penalty kill unit.

The 6'1" 190-pound Alaska native has 144 NHL games under his belt with Toronto and Atlanta. He won a Calder Cup with the Chicago Wolves in 2008.
