“We are pleased to re-sign Jay to a new three-year contract,” [Capitals GM Brian] MacLellan said. “Jay is a hard-working player who plays multiple positions and is an excellent face-off man and penalty killer. Jay has improved steadily since joining our organization and has always brought his game to a different level in the playoffs.”

He posted a -1.2% score-adjusted CF%Rel, which is the best relative possession numbers he’s posted in his career.

Beagle will turn 30 in October.
