The Washington Capitals have re-signed forward Marcus Johansson to a one-year, $3.75 million contract.
Johansson had requested $4.75 million in arbitration, while the team had been offering $3 million. An arbitrator awarded him the $3.75 million.
In 82 games last season, Johansson tallied a career-high 20 goals and 27 assists in 16:29 average time on ice. The 24-year-old is a former first-round draft pick by the Capitals and made his debut with Washington in 2010.
Washington finished 45-26-11 last season and lost to the New York Rangers in the second round of the playoffs.
