Holtby Stays In The Nations Capital !

Today, the Washington Capitals avoided arbitration with Braden Holtby and extended him to a 5 year deal worth $30.5 mil, according to Senior Vice President, General Manager Brian MacLellan. Holtby is very deserving of his deal and has improved every season he has been in the pros. Holtby was the rock between the posts this past season and led the Capitals to the playoffs. Holtby had a record of (41-20-10) in 73 regular season games played, also he had 9 shutouts with a goal against average of 2.22 and a save percentage of .923%, per Hockey-Reference.com. Holtby is a smaller goalie who makes up for that with his quickness.
