Turns out Keith Aucoin is headed to the Toronto Maple Leafs, not returning to the Capitals.
The Capitals reportedly have re-signed center Keith Aucoin to a one-year contract worth 650,000 at the NHL level and 350,000 at the AHL level.
Of the three Capitals veterans on the free agent market -- Mike Knuble, Alex Semin and Jeff Halpern -- would anyone have guessed that Halpern would be the first to sign with another team?
The Capitals were incredibly quiet on the first day of NHL free agency Sunday, but that doesnt mean they wont be opening their wallets on Day 2.
When the Capitals made the decision to part ways with Alexander Semin, Mike Knuble, Jeff Halpern, Cody Eakin and Dennis Wideman, a total of 46 goals went with them.
