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.
