Evening Fringe Signings (Jul 19)
The Washington Capitals came to terms with one of their key restricted free agents on Thursday afternoon, signing defenseman Madison Bowey to a 2-year, $2 million deal. Bowey, a 2nd round pick in 2013, finally made it into the Capitals lineup on a semi-permanent basis, playing in 51 games and picking up 12 assists in the process. That was good enough for 159th among all defensemen and if he can crack the team's blueline on a full-time basis, his fringe position could seriously be improved.
The Capitals only have one more key restricted free agent left to re-sign, forward Tom Wilson.
