ARLINGTON, Va. -- Troy Brouwer has signed a two-year, $4.7 million contract with the Washington Capitals.

The deal announced Wednesday comes less than two weeks after the right wing was acquired in a trade just before the NHL draft.

Washington sent the No. 26 overall pick to the Chicago Blackhawks for Brouwer, who was a restricted free agent.

The 25-year-old forward had 17 goals and 19 assists last season.
