The Capitals signed Chandler Stephenson to a one-year extension worth $1.05M.
Stephenson had five goals and six assists (11 points) in 64 games with the Capitals a season ago. The 25-year-old has settled into a bottom-6 role with Washington, but will have to battle with offseason additions Garnet Hathaway and Brendan Leipsic for playing time to start the 2020 campaign.
The Capitals have signed Christian Djoos to a one-year deal worth $1.25M (via arbitration).
Djoos missed a lot of time in 2019 due to a thigh injury that required surgery. The 24-year-old ended up finishing the season with 10 points (1G / 9A) in 45 games. Djoos will likely battle with Jonas Siegenthaler for the No.6 defenseman spot to open the 2020 season.
The Capitals have re-signed Jakub Vrana to a two-year contract worth $6.7M ($3.35M AAV).
After showing flashes of his potential in 2018, Vrana took another step forward in 2019, setting a carer-high in goals (24), assists (23) and points (47) in 82 games. Vrana did that while barely averaging over 14 minutes per game but could easily play closer to 16 minutes in the Capitals top-6 in 2020. With increased playing time, Vrana could be a legit 60-plus point threat.
The Capitals re-signed Vitek Vanecek to a three-year deal worth $2.15M ($716K AAV).
The Capitals signed Aliaksei Protas to a three-year, entry-level contract.
The Capitals signed Colby Williams to a one-year, two-way contract.
The Capitals have signed Connor McMichael to a three-year, entry-level contract.

The Capitals have signed Richard Panik to a four-year, $10.0M contract ($2.5M AAV).
The Capitals have signed Garnet Hathaway to a four-year deal worth $6.0M ($1.5M AAV).
The Capitals have re-signed Mike Sgarbossa to a two-year deal worth $1.4M ($700K).
Sgarbossa has bounced around the league in his career but has been a good AHL scorer along the way. The 26-year-old led Hershey in points (65) and was second in goals (30) during 2018-19 and will likely remain with the Bears to start 2020.
The Capitals acquired Scott Kosmachuk, a 2020 second-round pick and 2020 third round pick from the Avalanche for Andre Burakovsky.
Kosmachuk is a pending unrestricted free agent, who had 12 goals and 11 assists (23 points) in 54 AHL games with the Colorado Eagles last season. The 25-year-old was a third-round pick in 2012 but has played just eight NHL games since.
With the No.25 Pick in the 2019 NHL Draft the Washington Capitals select Connor McMichael.

The Capitals have re-signed Carl Hagelin to a four-year deal worth $11.0 million ($2.75M AAV).
The Capitals acquired Hagelin from the Kings in February and the veteran winger put his early-season struggles behind him, posting 11 points (3G / 8A) in 20 games with Washington. Hagelin had a 56.7 CorsiFor% and led all Capitals forwards in PK TOI/GM (2:21) after being acquired.
The Capitals have acquired Radko Gudas from the Flyers for Matt Niskanen.
Gudas is heading into the final year of his four-year deal that carries a $3.35 million cap-hit, versus Niskanen’s two remaining years at $5.75 million. Gudas is coming off of one of his best offensive seasons, scoring four goals with 16 assists (20 points) in 77 games. Gudas was second on the Flyers in hits (255) and tied for third in blocked shots (133). He will help bolster the Capitals penalty-kill, where he played 2:37 per game last year—second among Flyers skaters.
The Capitals have signed Liam O’Brien to a one-year deal worth $700K.
O’Brien, 24, had 15 goals and 13 assists (28 points) in 74 games with the Hershey Bears (AHL) this season. The undrafted centre has just one goal and one assist in 17 career NHL games with Washington.
The Capitals signed Brian Pinho to a one-year, $700K contract extension.
Pinho, 24, is a former sixth-round pick, who turned pro this season after four years at Providence College. Pinho had four goals and eight assists (12 points) in 73 games with Hershey (AHL).
The Capitals re-signed Shane Gersich to a one-year, $700K contract extension.
Gersich, 22, is a former fifth-round pick who turned pro last season after three years at the University of North Dakota. Gersich had eight goals and 16 assists (24 points) in 66 games with Hershey (AHL) and had one assist in his first three NHL games.
