The Washington Capitals have made a few moves in NHL free agency during the 2012 offseason, including signing left winger Wojtek Wolski to a 1-year deal the team announced on Wednesday afternoon. The 26-year old Wolski played for both the New York Rangers and Florida Panthers during the 2011-12 NHL season, picking up four goals and eight assists for the season.
Wolski was a first-round pick in the 2004 NHL Entry Draft by the Colorado Avalanche and has also spent some time with the Phoenix Coyotes. The 6-foot-3 215 pound winger was part of the same draft class as current Capitals Alex Ovechkin, Jeff Schultz and Mike Green. Wolski ranks tied for sixth in scoring for the 2004 draft class.
