Posted on February 25, 2013 by Mike Vogel

Washington has re-signed goaltender Braden Holtby to a two-year contract extension. The deal will pay Holtby $1.6 million for the 2013-14 season and $2 million for the 2014-15 campaign. The 23-year-old netminder will also receive a signing bonus of $100,000 on July 1, 2013.


The Capitals’ fourth-round choice (93rd overall) at the 2008 NHL Entry Draft, Holtby made his NHL debut with Washington on Nov. 5, 2010. He is 19-10-3 with four shutouts, a 2.51 GAA and a .916 save pct. in 32 career regular season appearances (28 starts).


Holtby is 5-6 with a shutout, a 3.37 GAA and an .896 save pct. in 11 apperances (10 starts) this season.


In 14 playoff games last spring, Holtby went 7-7 with a 1.95 GAA and a .935 save pct.


The Caps now have four remaining players who are slated to become RFAs in the off-season: forward Marcus Johansson, defensemen Karl Alzner and Tomas Kundratek and goaltender Michal Neuvirth.

    That Edmonton goal came off an Ovechkin turnover at the left point; he partially fanned on a shot try and RNH scooped it up and tore off.

    Oilers get it right back off the rush. Nugent-Hopkins. It's 2-2 just 20 seconds after the Green goal. #CapsOilers

    Green pitched it into the corner, Burakovsky went in and won the puck, fed Green who crept in and picked his spot. #CapsOilers
