Capitals without an agent
Ovechkin expected to re-sign with Capitals prior to free agency, GM says 🏒
Ovechkin has been negotiating his contract with the Capitals without an agent, as he did in 2008, when he signed his expiring 13-year, $124 million contract ($9.538 million average annual value). The 35-year-old forward has repeatedly said he'd like to return to Washington, which selected him with the No. 1 pick in the 2004 NHL Draft.
