The Washington Capitals have reached an agreement to purchase CapFriendly, the team announced Wednesday.

The transaction won't go through until after the draft and opening of free agency in July. After the sale, the website will go dark.

"The Capitals have agreed to acquire CapFriendly, including its tools and functions, for its in-house hockey operations department," Washington president and general manager Brian McLellan said.

"The strategic move will provide the Capitals organization with the ability to digest, present, and analyze both our internal and league-supplied data."

CapFriendly is a popular salary figure website used by fans, media, and NHL organizations. Teams were recently informed their contracts with the website will be terminated.

CapFriendly was launched in 2015.
