Capitals re-sign backup goalie Brent Johnson
Johnson was picked up on waivers from Vancouver last October, and played 26 games as the backup to Olie Kolzig. Johnson went 9-12-1, while stopping 11 of 13 shootout attempts for an .846 shootout save percentage.
He went 4-1-1 in his last six starts, allowing one goal or less in all four of the victories. One of his top games came last April against the Ottawa Senators, when he stopped 46 shots in a 1-0 win.
