The Capitals added to their bottom six by adding Garnet Hathaway to a four-year, 6 million deal.
Hathaway was an undrafted free agent and spent parts of four seasons with the Calgary Flames. Hathaway brings a physical sense to the fourth line. Last season, Hathaway delivered 200 total hits.
In what was his first full NHL season, Hathaway 11 goals and 8 assists totaling for 19 points. The 27-year-old is reliable on the penalty kill, an area the Capitals have vastly improved with Carl Hagelin and Richard Pánik.
