2011 NHL Free Agency: Scott Hannan, Marco Sturm Yet To Be Offered Contacts From Washington Capitals, According To Agents

Via The Washington Times' Stephen Whyno, the Washington Capitals have not made contract offers to unrestricted free agents Scott Hannan and Marco Sturm.

Hannan, who arrived in Washington November 30 from the Colorado Avalanche in exchange for Tomas Fleischmann, said at the end of the season that he would like to return, but the veteran defenseman's agent, Don Meehan, has said that the Caps have yet to make an offer:

"As far as Scott's situation with the Capitals is concerned, the Capitals have not made any offer to date, but have indicated that they may very well speak to us on Scott's situation subsequent to July 1."

Hannan had one goal and four assists in 55 games for Washington during the regular season. He made his debut with the Caps December 2 against the Dallas Stars, which ultimately was the first loss of the team's season-high eight-game losing streak. Hannan did not win his first game with Washington until December 19.

Meanwhile, Sturm has also not received an offer, according to his agent, Larry Kelly, who also represents Matt Bradley. The Caps picked Sturm off waivers from the Los Angeles Kings in February. He had one goal and six assists in 18 regular season games for Washington.
