In the aftermath of the Matt Niskanen trade, the Washington Capitals used some newfound cap space to re-sign Carl Hagelin to a four-year, 11 million dollar deal. The AAV for the winger will be $2.75 million until the end of the 2023 season.
Acquired from the LA Kings in a February trade, Hagelin came in and turned around his offensive performance and notched three goals and 11 points through his 20 games in Washington.
A noted-speedster on the ice, Hagelin helped out the team’s penalty kill after arriving in D.C. He was a forward that wore many hats, as he played anywhere from the second to the fourth line in his tenure.
