The Capitals have signed Matt Niskanen to a seven-year deal worth $40.25 million.

Niskanen had a great year in Pittsburgh in 2013-14. Niskanen had 10 goals and 36 assists (46 points) with a plus-33 rating in 81 games. A huge season and a lack of defensemen depth in free agency leads to massive money for the 27-year-old. Niskanen will likely anchor the Capitals top power-play unit for the next number of seasons.
