The Capitals have signed center Brendan Morrison to a one-year contract worth $1.5 million, per Tarik. The acquisition of Morrison appears to address the team's vacancy at second-line center. Morrison, 33, split last season between Anaheim and Dallas, recording 16 goals and 15 assists in 81 games.
Drafted by New Jersey in 1993, Morrison spent nearly a decade in Vancouver from 1999-2008; he put up his best numbers on the team's potent top line alongside Markus Naslund and Todd Bertuzzi. He recorded a career-high 71 points (25G, 46A) in 2002-03, but hasn't cracked the 50-point plateau since 2006-07.
