Capitals Sign Milano To Three-Year Extension

ARLINGTON, V.A. — The Washington Capitals have signed Sonny Milano to a three-year contract extension, general manager Brian MacLellan announced on Saturday.
Milano's deal carries an AAV of $1.9 million.
Through 40 games this season, Milano has picked up eight goals and 14 assists for 22 points. He is tied for fourth on the team in goals and sixth on the team in points.
Milano originally signed with Washington back on Oct. 16, settling for a one-year, $750,000 contract following a "weird summer" that saw him go unsigned and released from a professional tryout with the Calgary Flames. After starting his Capitals tenure in Hershey, he worked his way back up and made his season debut on Nov. 5.
The 6-0, 194-pound winger has since found a home in D.C. and has become a regular on the top-6 while playing a vital role in generating offense at even strength.
"I think I just fit in pretty well with these guys," Milano said. "Like I said, my energy and speed, I think I use some of that and I think that's what I'm bringing."
This is the team's second signing over the All-Star break. On Friday, Washington signed Dylan Strome to a five-year, $25 million extension.
