WASHINGTON (Ticker) - The Washington Capitals re-signed Matt Pettinger to a three-year contract on Monday, one day before the left wing was scheduled for arbitration.

Financial terms were not disclosed.

Pettinger, 25, registered 20 goals and 18 assists this past season. His 38 points were more than triple his production in any of his first five seasons with the club.

A second-round pick of the Capitals in the 2000 draft, Pettinger has 34 goals and 26 assists in 214 games.

I didn't see him play much (obviously), but I heard his name here and there (Since Ovy's in Washington, and we're getting a little more Caps talk these days).

He scored 20 goals? I had no idea. :dunno: Good for him. It looks like he's supposed to be more of a grinder, but maybe he's starting to add in some offence into his game.

He's 25, so he can probably improve even more.

Hopefully a Caps fan can fill me in on this guy, but I'll surely keep an eye on him this season.

I said I'll keep an eye on him, and I'm keeping an eye on him.

He seems to be a grinding type of player that can also chip in offencively.

He has 10 Goals and 7 Assists in 30 games, and looks like he's yet again on pace to get over 20+ again.

Not a bad player at all, and good on Washington for signing him for 3 years.
