The Washington Capitals re-signed center Jay Beagle to a three-year, $5.25 million contract, the team announced on Monday.

Beagle, 29, set career highs in goals (10), assists (10) and points (20) while equaling his career high with 62 games played. The Capitals finished 45–26–11 for 101 points, reaching the playoffs before losing in the second round to the New York Rangers. In 14 playoff games, Beagle recorded five points (one goal, four assists).

“We are pleased to re-sign Jay to a new three-year contract,” Capitals general manager Brian MacLellan said in a release. “Jay is a hard-working player who plays multiple positions and is an excellent face-off man and penalty killer. Jay has improved steadily since joining our organization and has always brought his game to a different level in the playoffs.”
