Monday at the 5 pm deadline, the Washington Capitals extended qualifying offers to five of their restricted free agents — Tom Wilson, Madison Bowey, Travis Boyd, Liam O’Brien, and Riley Barber — allowing the team to retain their rights.
Fourth-line forward Devante Smith-Pelly was not tendered and will be a UFA, though the Caps say the two sides are still negotiating.

The players can either accept their one-year offers (which includes raises of up to 10 percent) or can continue to negotiate.
Four of those five restricted free-agents are arbitration eligible: Wilson, Boyd, Barber and O’Brien. Madison Bowey is not.
The Capitals also did not qualify minor leaguers Adam Chapie, Tim McGauley and goalie Adam Carlson.
