NHL CapHit: $8,000,000 Puckpedia Profile

The Capitals have agreed to terms with John Carlson on an eight-year contract extension worth $64.0M ($8.0M AAV).

Carlson had a season to remember, leading all defensemen in points (68) and winning the Stanley Cup in a contract year. Re-signing Carlson looked like it might be difficult for the Capitals, but they traded Philipp Grubauer and Brooks Orpik to the Avalanche on Friday, clearing some cap-space to sign their No.1 blueliner. Carlson ties Brent Burns with the second-highest cap-hit among NHL defensemen at $8.0 million.
