ARLINGTON, Va. – The Washington Capitals have re-signed forward Marcus Johansson to a three-year, $13.75 million contract, senior vice president and general manager Brian MacLellan announced today. Johansson will earn $4.25 million in 2016-17 and $4.75 million in 2017-18 and 2018-19.
from Isabelle Khurshudyan of the Washington Post,
With arbitration hearings in the NHL being rare occurrences, Washington Capitals forward Marcus Johansson appears poised to enter the unique process. Players or teams have filed for arbitration 307 times since 2006, but a hearing has been needed just 42 times, according to generalfanager.com, as a deal between player and team is usually reached before the mediation is needed.
Johansson was one of three players last summer who was awarded his contract through an arbitration, and if he and the Capitals don’t negotiate a deal prior to his July 20 hearing, he’ll become the first player since 2006 (as far back as the arbitration tracker goes) to go through the process twice. With both sides still apart on terms less than a week before the hearing, it seems likely that Johansson’s next contract will again be determined by an arbitrator, barring an 11th-hour settlement.
General Manager Brian MacLellan “and I have tried quite a few times to see if we can talk about something longer term,” said Johansson’s agent, J.P. Barry. “We really haven’t been successful on any attempts of sort of a longer-term negotiation. It could be just be the cap and different views of what’s going. So then obviously, we have to turn around and deal with our arbitration case.”
Two minutes for interference.

From the Washington Capitals:
ARLINGTON, Va. – The Washington Capitals have re-signed center Marcus Johansson to a two-year, $4 million contract, vice president and general manager George McPhee announced today. Johansson will earn $1,825,000 in 2013-14 and $2,175,000 in 2014-15.
Johansson, 22, recorded 22 points (6 goals, 16 assists) in 34 games during the 2012-13 season. He ranked tied for fourth on the Capitals in assists and tied for fifth in power-play goals (3). The 6'1'', 205-pound center posted career marks during the 2011-12 campaign when he collected 46 points (14 goals, 32 assists) in 80 games with Washington. He ranked third on the team in assists, tied for third in points and tied for seventh in goals.
from Chuck Gormley of CSN Washington,
Another week is about to slip away without the 22-year-old Swede under contract.
Johansson is coming off a three-year entry level contract that paid him $900,000. He is believed to be seeking an extension in excess of the two-year, $4.5 million contract Carl Hagelin signed this summer with the Rangers.
After signing Mikhail Grabovski to a one-year, $3 million contract on Friday, the Caps now have 21 players under contract and sit just $2.665 million below the NHL salary cap.
Which means …
Johansson will either settle for a contract in the $2.5 million range or the Caps will need to move either him or someone else’s salary to make room for him....
Johansson is coming off a productive – albeit brief – season last year, benefitting from top linemates Alex Ovechkin and Nicklas Backstrom to record six goals and 16 assists in 34 games.
Thomas robs Marcus Johansson.
Of all five Southeast Division clubs, the Washington Capitals of 2010-11 will look the most like themselves from a year ago, having added only a spattering of depth to the lineup that captured the President’s Trophy last season. Alas, as the reigning division champ and still the clear-cut class of the division, if it ain’t broke, well, you know… But a first-round playoff exit thanks to Jaroslav Halak and the Montreal Canadiens left an awful taste in the mouths of Bruce Boudreau’s squad, meaning improvements are in order this year for sure. (Or else?)
