Free Agent Defensemen Willie Mitchell Working Out With Capitals Today

As great as the Washington Capitals were last year, they did lack experience on the blue line. So far this summer, they've done little to address that issue, believing that their existing group can grow organically.

But that may soon change. Rumors have begun swirling about the Capitals being interested in former Canucks defensemen Willie Mitchell, who remains unsigned largely due to a concussion he suffered midway through last season. Today, the Capitals are working Mitchell out, according to CSN Washington's Corey Masisak.

Mitchell scored four goals and had eight assists in 48 games last year, but has only one had a negative plus/minus in 10 seasons in the NHL.
