Capitals sign defenceman Jeff Schultz to one-year contract

ARLINGTON, Va. - Defenceman Jeff Schultz signed a US$715,000, one-year contract to stay with the Washington Capitals.

The 23-year-old Schultz has played the past three seasons with the Capitals. He had one goal and 12 assists in 64 games last season, when Washington won its second consecutive Southeast Division title.

The deal represents a slight raise for Schultz, who made $650,000 last season.

The six-foot-six Schultz was a first-round draft pick in 2004. He has six goals, 33 points and 65 penalty minutes in 174 career games with Washington.
