ARLINGTON, Va. – The Washington Capitals have acquired a fourth-round draft pick in the 2014 NHL Draft and forward John Mitchell from the Anaheim Ducks in exchange for forward Mathieu Perreault, vice president and general manager George McPhee announced today. Mitchell will report to Hershey.
Mitchell, 27, collected 14 points (10 goals, 4 assists) and 48 penalty minutes in 61 games with the Norfolk Admirals of the American Hockey League (AHL) last season.
Perreault recorded 17 points (6 goals, 11 assists) in 39 games with Washington last season. The Drummondville, Quebec, native tallied 70 points (33 goals, 37 assists) in 159 career NHL games with the Capitals. Perreault was drafted by Washington in the sixth round (177th overall) in the 2006 NHL Entry Draft.
ARLINGTON, Va. – The Washington Capitals have re-signed center Mathieu Perreault to a two-year extension, vice president and general manager George McPhee announced today.
Perreault, 24, set career highs in goals (16), assists (14), points (30), games played (64) and plus/minus (+9) in 2011-12. He finished first on Washington in shooting percentage (26.7%) and tied for fourth on the team with four game-winning goals. His 30 points ranked 10th on the team while he finished tied for fifth in goals and tied for fourth in plus/minus. Perreault tallied his first career NHL hat trick on Jan. 24 vs. Boston and made his NHL playoff debut against the Bruins, appearing in four postseason games with the Capitals in 2012
Gleason received five for charging, a ten and game misconduct.
Matt Hendricks or the Capitals was given two for roughing.
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?)
