Hunter Shepard will try to run it back with the Hershey Bears.
Shepard re-signed with the Washington Capitals on the first day of free agency, inking a two-year, two-way deal where he will make $400k guaranteed each season.
The contract, per CapFriendly, will pay Shepard $775k at the NHL level and $400k in the AHL. The deal represents a big payday at the AHL level for Shepard, reserved for one of the top players in the league. For example, the Capitals paid Mike Vecchione $250k last season in the AHL.
