Jay Beagle picked up his first goal of the season plus an assist in Thursday's 3-2 win over Vancouver.

It was quite the night for Beagle, who is coming off a career best 10 goals and 20 points in 62 games from last season. Surprisingly it's the fifth career multi-point game for Beagle, who has just 50 points to his name. And it's his third in the calendar year.

Jay Beagle did not return to the game after being injured in the Capitals 6-2 win over the Islanders Sunday.

Jay Beagle is aiming to win the Capitals’ third-line center job.

He set career highs (10 goals, 10 assists) under first-year coach Barry Trotz. "That’s always been my dream," said Beagle. "I’ve really worked a lot on faceoffs this summer, just puckhandling and trying to be a more skilled two-way forward. Just trying to build off what I had last year. The forward that can win those crucial draws, that you can put out in any situation … is the type of player I want to be." Beagle offers no fantasy appeal.

Jay Beagle has re-upped with the Washington Capitals on a three-year contract extension worth $1.75 million per season.

He was a pending unrestricted free agent who set personal bests with 10 goals and 10 assists for 20 points in 62 games last season. Beagle won 56.5 percent of his draws 2014-15 and he posted an incredible 63.8 winning percentage on faceoffs during the playoffs. "Jay is a hard-working player who plays multiple positions and is an excellent face-off man and penalty killer," said GM Brian MacLellan in a statement. "Jay has improved steadily since joining our organization and has always brought his game to a different level in the playoffs."

Jay Beagle said that he would be 'honored' to re-sign with the Washington Capitals.

Beagle is eligible to become an unrestricted free agent on July 1 but if he had his druthers, he wants back in with the Capitals. "I would love to stay here," Beagle said. "I would be honored to. That’s the way I look at it. At the end of the day, I will talk to my agent. That’s why I have him. He’s there for me and he’s always been great for me. I definitely want to hear what he has to say and see what happens. This is the first time I’ve been through it. I have no clue what could happen. But I obviously love it here. I’m not going to say otherwise." Beagle had ten goals and 20 points in 60 regular season games so his fantasy value is limited at best.

Jay Beagle wants to re-sign with the Washington Capitals, but the two sides might not see eye-to-eye.

Capitals GM Brian MacLellan is interested in signing Beagle "at a good number as a fourth-line player." Beagle might see himself as being worth more than that though, especially after he averaged 15:47 minutes per contest in the playoffs. He's eligible to become an unrestricted free agent after completing his three-year, $2.7 million deal.
