On Wednesday afternoon, the Washington Capitals announced they had re-signed prospect Travis Boyd to a one-year, two-way contract. The 23-year-old center will make the league minimum of $650,000 at the NHL level and $115,000 if he’s down in Hershey.
In his second full season in the pros after four years at the University of Minnesota, Boyd led the Hershey Bears in points, tallying a career-high 63 in 76 games. Boyd, who was named to the 2017 AHL All-Star game, was honored with a spot on the Second All-Star Team for the league. He has 118 points in 154 career AHL games after being drafted in the sixth-round, 177th overall, in the 2011 Entry Draft.
Boyd was also voted team MVP.
