The Washington Capitals are continuing to restock their organization with quality depth as they announced on Wednesday that they have signed defenseman Chase Priskie to a one-year, two-way contract. Priskie, once a Hobey Baker Award nominee, was originally a Caps draft pick in 2016 but chose not to sign with the team out of Quinnipiac University.
Priskie has spent the majority of his professional career playing in the AHL, most recently starring for the San Diego Gulls at the end of the 2022-23 season. In 16 games for San Diego, he recorded 13 points (7g, 6a) from the backend.
His new contract with the Caps will see him make a guaranteed $350,000. He’ll be paid $775k at the NHL level and $350k with the Bears.
