Capitals sign free-agent defensemen Cameron Schilling

The Capitals announced that they’ve signed college free agent defenseman Cameron Schilling to a two-year entry level contract.

Schilling, who is listed at 6-2, 197-pounds, just wrapped up a four-year collegiate career playing for Miami (Ohio) University. In 39 games this season, he recorded 14 points (one goal, 13 assists), 20 penalty minutes and was a plus-13.

The entry level deal will begin in the 2012-13 season but Schilling, 23, will report to the AHL’s Hershey Bears this week and start playing on a tryout agreement for the rest of the 2011-12 season.

“Cameron was a highly sought-after college free agent and we are delighted that he signed with the Washington Capitals,” General Manager George McPhee said in a news release. “He will be a solid pro for many years.”

McPhee is scheduled to meet with reporters to discuss the signing at 6:15 p.m.
