The Washington Capitals have signed unrestricted free-agent winger Sonny Milano to a one-year contract worth $750,000, the team announced Sunday.

Washington will place Milano on waivers for assignment to the AHL's Hershey Bears.

The 26-year-old was in training camp with the Calgary Flames on a professional tryout, but he didn't make the team.

Milano spent last season with the Anaheim Ducks, tallying 14 goals and 20 assists in 66 games. His underlying numbers were stellar, too:

Selected 16th overall by the Columbus Blue Jackets in 2014, Milano has registered 36 goals and 45 assists in 197 career NHL games between Columbus and Anaheim.
