Caps re-sign Fleischmann for $2.6M

ARLINGTON, Va. -- Forward Tomas Fleischmann has re-signed with the Washington Capitals, getting a $2.6 million, one-year contract.

The 26-year-old Fleischmann set career highs with 23 goals and 28 assists last season for the Presidents' Trophy winners, despite missing the first 11 games because of deep vein thrombosis in his leg.

He has 56 goals and 72 assists in five NHL seasons, all with Washington.

The team announced his signing Tuesday.
