WASHINGTON (CP) - The Washington Capitals signed veteran enforcer Donald Brashear to a one-year contract extension Monday.

The 35-year-old left-winger signed a US$1-million, one-year deal with the Capitals last July. The six-foot-two 235-pounder has seven points (2-5) in 52 games this season and a team-leading 125 penalty minutes.

What do Cap fans think of having Donald around for another year?
Being a lifelong Caps fan, I love the idea. Unlike Pittsburgh, we have someone to protect the stars who gets regular icetime, understands his role as protector, and does it well.

We also have a coach who's not afraid to use Brash, and hopefully when he gets back, Erskine as well.

We haven't had a full-fledged enforcer stay a full season in DC since the Chief Craig Berube.

Stephen Peat got hurt all the time, and last year our biggest fighters were Chris Clark, more valuable with his hands for putting pucks in the net, and Brendan Witt, also more valuable than punching someone in the face.

He's there to stick up for the Russian kids AO and Semin, as well as kids like Mike Green and Eric Fehr.
