NHL free agency is now in its fourth week and Mike Knuble is still waiting for a phone call from a team seeking his services as a power forward and locker room leader.
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.
