Capitals re-sign Marcus Johansson

The Washington Capitals have re-signed restricted free agent
center Marcus Johansson to a two-year, $4 million contract.

The Capitals announced Saturday that Johansson will earn $1.825
million next season and $2.175 million in 2014-15.

The 22-year-old Johansson had six goals and 16 assists in 34
games last season. He missed part of the season with a concussion
but returned to play well at the end skating on the top line with
Alex Ovechkin and Nicklas Backstrom.

Johansson was a first-round draft pick by the Capitals in
2009.
