Marcus Johansson inks 2-year deal with Capitals.

 SPECTOR’S NOTE: A fair bridge deal for Johansson, who’s had a promising start to his NHL career but has yet to post up numbers worthy of a lucrative, long-term contract.

The 22-year-old had 46 points in 80 games in his sophomore season (2011-12), but injuries limited him to 22 points in 34 games last season.

A versatile playmaker who can play all three forward positions, Johansson could have a bright future with the Capitals if he continues his promising development and can avoid serious injury.

  1. Good signing.. I bet the Kadri & Cowen camps are pissed off at that contract. Although both Kadri & Cowen made about 400K or 500K more than Johannsen… they shouldn’t be demanding more than 2.5M a season in the next couple of seasons..
