KUKLA’S KORNER: reported the Washington Capitals have announced the re-signing of Jason Chimera to a two-year contract worth $3.5 million, or an average cap hit of $1.75 million per season.

SPECTOR’S NOTE: Chimera is a versatile forward who can play either wing and is a good veteran presence on the Capitals checking lines. The price is certainly right for a player of his skills.
