The Capitals have confirmed that they've signed Michal Neuvirth to a two-year extension worth $2.3 million, as was first reported by CapGeek. The 22-year-old goaltender will earn $1.15 million per year beginning in 2011-12 under his new deal.
Neuvirth was set to become a restricted free agent at the end of this season when his entry-level contract runs out. He will earn $765,000 this year.
More to come from the morning skate including projected lines for tonight's preseason opener in Columbus.
