Capitals Re-Sign Matt Bradley to Three-Year Contract

ARLINGTON, VA., The Washington Capitals have re-signed right wing Matt Bradley to a three-year contract, vice president and general manager George McPhee announced today.

Bradley, 29, appeared in 77 games last season for the Capitals, recording 18 points (seven goals, 11 assists) in his third year with the team. Bradley also added two assists in seven playoff games against Philadelphia. He finished the year fourth on the team with 74 penalty minutes, fifth with 126 hits and eighth with a career-high 111 shots on goal.

A 63, 210-pound native of Stittsville, Ontario, Bradley was selected by San Jose in the fourth round of the 1996 NHL Entry Draft, 102nd overall. In his seven NHL seasons, he has played for San Jose, Pittsburgh and Washington totaling 411 games. Bradley has 95 career points (37 goals and 58 assists) and 359 penalty minutes. He was signed by Washington as a free agent on Aug. 18, 2005.

Good for Bradley to get the multi-year deal. He's an effective, hard-nosed player for the Caps.
Steve Webb for Commissioner.

Every team needs a couple Matt Bradley's on them. Good for him, and good signing by the Caps. I thought there were a couple games in the playoffs where the Bradley/Brashear line was one of the best for the Capitals.

Far from the best fighter, but Bradley will always go looking to finish his checks, and will back it up when he needs to. Good signing for the Caps.
The above post may contain sarcasm.

Brashear beat your favorite fighter. Undisputed top 5 all time.

Good signing by the Caps, there should be more guys like Bradley out there.
"It's huge when guys are sticking up for each other," Rechlicz said. "It's more of a team bonding thing. I think it's great, and that's the style we've got to play. Guys come together, and it's like your family out there ... That's what it's all about. If you mess with one of our guys, you're going to mess with five of them. That's just the way it's going to go."
