We’ve got some breaking hockey/dog news to report. Fourth line center Jay Beagle has been re-signed to an expensive three-year, $5.25 million contract. Beags’ annual average salary is $1.75 mil.
Last season, Beagle had career highs in, well, virtually everything. He also was strong in the playoffs, leading the NHL in face-off percentage through the second round.
Beagle may be the Caps’ sole unrestricted free agent to re-sign as Mike Green, Eric Fehr, and Joel Ward all appear ready to find new teams.
