The Washington Capitals tendered qualifying offers to restricted free agents Ilya Samsonov and Lucas Johansen before Monday’s 5 PM deadline.
The move allows the Capitals to keep the rights of both players heading into free agency.

Samsonov and Johansen can either accept the one-year offers which includes raises of up to 10 percent or can continue to negotiate.
Notable non-tendered players around the league include Nick Ritchie, Ondrej Kase, Evgeny Svechnikov, Marcus Hogberg, and Ryan Donato. All non-tendered players will be unrestricted free agents unless they re-sign with their teams before Wednesday.
The @NHLBruins didn't qualify either Ondrej Kase or Nick Ritchie, making them UFAs.
Kase finishes his Boston career having appeared in nine games. They traded a 2020 1st round draft pick (Jacob Perreault), Axel Andersson and David Backes for him in Feb. 2020.
