Washington Capitals sign goaltender Dany Sabourin to one-year deal

ARLINGTON, Va. - The Washington Capitals have signed free-agent goaltender Dany Sabourin to a one-year contract.

Sabourin has bounced between the NHL and the American Hockey League during his 10-year professional career.

In 2009-10, he posted a 28-27 record and a 2.67 goals-against average in 56 appearances with the AHL's Providence Bruins.

Sabourin played 43 games for the Pittsburgh Penguins in 2007-08 and 2008-09, going 16-17-3. He was chosen the AHL's top goalie in 2005-06 with Wilkes-Barre/Scranton.

Jose Theodore, the Capitals' starting goalie for much of 2009-10, is a free agent and is not expected to be retained. That leaves the Capitals with a pair of 22-year-olds, Semyon Varlamov and Michal Neuvirth, likely to get most of the starts.
