Capitals Re-Sign Braden Holtby

The Caps and Holtby have avoided an arbitration ruling and gone straight to a five-year contract extension.

The deal will keep Holtby as the franchise goaltender through at least the 2019-20 season, and steers clear of that $8 million price tag his camp asked for ahead of arbitration.
