"The Washington Capitals have re-signed forward Sergei Fedorov to a one-year $4 million contract.I must say I am quite excited about having Fedorov back for another year. We'll discuss the cap issues later for now I will enjoy thought of #91 passing to #8 or #28 with red lights flashing and horns blaring. Ahh... Is it October yet?
The 17-year NHL veteran, a trade deadline acquisition from the Columbus Blue Jackets, was a key member of the Capitals improbable run to the playoffs last season.
In the final 18 regular season games, Fedorov contributed two goals and 11 assists and chipped in with five points in Washington's seven-game, first-round loss to the Philadelphia Flyers.
The 1993-94 Hart Trophy winner is the highest scoring Russian-born player in NHL history, amassing 472 goals and 674 assists in 1196 career NHL games."
