Mathieu Perrault Signs A Two-Year Deal With The Washington Capitals

The Washington Capitals are trying to make sure that a core group of players from last year's team are still around. They have addressed this by signing center Mathieu Perrault, according to a report by Washington Times Capitals reporter Stephen Whyno.

According to Mike Vogel, Perreault will receive $1 million in 2012-13 and $1.1 million in 2013-14 for an annual cap hit of $1.05 million.

The signing does provide the Capitals with a speedy point man that can get up and down the rink very well. Last season, Perrault played in 64 games and tallied 14 goals with 16 assists. He finished the year with a plus-nine rating, scored two power play goals and netted four game winning tallies in the regular season.
