Former Washington Capitals forward Brendan Leipsic signed a one-year deal with CSKA Moscow of the KHL, the Russian team announced Tuesday.

Leipsic, 26, was released by the Capitals in May after a group chat between him and his friends containing inappropriate and misogynistic comments surfaced on social media.

The 5-foot-11 winger was in the final year of his NHL deal and was set to become an unrestricted free agent following the 2019-20 campaign.

Leipsic tallied 16 goals and 59 points in 187 NHL contests.
