Van Riemsdyk, 29, currently earns $800k per season, so this deal will be a minor raise. TVR has played nine games with the Capitals since signing with the team in October.
He has been a common healthy scratch, most recently suiting up in an eleven-forward/seven-defenders situation in which he played under one minute of ice time.
