Busy day! The Capitals have announced they have re-signed tough guy D-man John Erskine to a two-year contract extension worth just south of $4 million. Erskine is the team’s lowest-ranked defenseman when it comes to possession, although he’s not getting tagged for that yet in the goals-against department. He’s currently eating up career-high minutes– 19:30 per game.
Here’s Sky’s tweet, also timestamped weirdly:
#Caps officially announce the John Erskine two-year extension for 3.9 mil, 1.9 mil in 2013-2014, 2 mil in 2014-2015
