Report: Capitals trying to re-sign Hagelin
Hagelin was traded twice last year, but the Capitals acquired him prior to the deadline in a deal with the Los Angeles Kings that sent a 2019 third-round pick and a 2020 conditional sixth-rounder to Hollywood.
After arriving in Washington, Hagelin put up 11 points in 20 games and added one assist in the club's brief playoff run.
The Capitals made a transaction earlier Friday, acquiring Radko Gudas from the Philadelphia Flyers in exchange for Matt Niskanen. The trade gives Washington some extra financial flexibility, and it enters the offseason with a projected $12.48 million in cap space, per Cap Friendly.
Hagelin's previous contract paid him $4 million per year.
