CAPS SIGN SCHULTZ TO 4-YEAR EXTENSION
WASHINGTON, D.C. - The Washington Capitals announced Wednesday afternoon they signed defenseman Jeff Schultz to a four-year contract extension.

Schultz led the NHL in 2009-10 with plus-50 mark, topping the Caps previous record by +14 points (Alan Haworth in 1985-86). He became the first Capital to lead the league in the plus/minus department.

“I felt good about my year,” says Schultz. “As the year went on, I got more comfortable and felt I was contributing more and rounding off my game and getting that consistency that I want.”

With Schultz in a D.C. sweater for the next four years, the Caps should continue its dominance in the Eastern Conference with Alex Ovechkin and Nicklas Backstrom being locked into long-term deals.
