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.
