The Washington Capitals signed defenseman Trevor van Riemsdyk to a two-year, $1.9-million extension, Sportsnet's Elliotte Friedman reported Sunday.

Van Riemsdyk, 29, inked a one-year deal worth $800,000 with the Capitals in October, and he was set to become an unrestricted free agent at the end of this season.

The 6-foot-2 blue-liner has appeared in just nine games this season, contributing one goal while averaging 15:07 of ice time.

Van Riemsdyk has recorded 16 goals and 70 points over 373 career contests. He was on the Chicago Blackhawks team that captured the Stanley Cup during his rookie campaign in 2015.
