Forget about a Carl Hagelin return.
The Capitals signed him Sunday to a four-year, $11 million extension to keep him from becoming an unrestricted free agent July 1. That's an average annual value of $2.75 million, and it'll carry him through the 2022-23 NHL season.
The Penguins traded Hagelin, 30, to the Kings last November for Tanner Pearson, and the Kings in turn traded him to Washington in February for a third-round draft pick. In 20 regular-season games with the Capitals, he had three goals, eight assists and led all forwards in penalty-killing ice time at an average of 2:21 per game.
