The Washington Capitals have signed Brett Connolly to a one-year contract worth $850,000.
Connolly has been a big disappointment since he was drafted sixth overall in 2010 by the Tampa Bay Lightning. He will get yet another chance to revive his career in Washington but at the age of 24, his chances could be running out. He had nine goals and 25 points in 71 games with Boston last season so he is not worth a pickup in fantasy hockey. Jul 1 - 2:43 PM
