Yes you read the title right...Chris Bourque has signed a one year deal with the Capitals. No word on if it is a two way deal or not but I am guessing it is.
Chris spent last season split between the KHL and the Swiss league, scoring 15 goals and 19 assists in 47 games.
The addition of Bourque gives the Bears 5 veteran forwards. So anyone hoping to see Giroux, Mink or Gordon return to the Bears is probably going to be disappointed. I won't say it can't happen but it isn't likely now.
In other news...everyone's favorite defenseman is back too. Sean Collins signed a one year deal with the organization as well. This time though it is a two way contract and won't cost the Caps too much if they send him down to Hershey. (The last 2 years were on NHL one way contracts for those that didn't know).
And a follow up to yesterday...the Ryan Potulny deal is, according to capgeek.com, a 2 year contract with the 2nd year an NHL one way deal.
