WASHINGTON (AP) -The Washington Capitals signed left wing enforcer Donald Brashear to a one-year contract extension Thursday.
Brashear, 36, is in his second season with the Capitals. He leads the team with 72 penalty minutes and also has three goals and three assists in 50 games.
Brashear has also played for Montreal, Vancouver and Philadelphia over 14 NHL seasons.
``I think whether the physical play in the NHL is down, it's pretty nice to have the biggest dog on the block on your team,'' coach Bruce Boudreau said. ``And I think we do.''
