Since being drafted by the Capitals in the third round (77th overall) of the 2012 NHL Draft, Stephenson has appeared in 144 career games, all with Washington. The Saskatoon, Sask., native has tallied 29 points (11 goals and 18 assists) over that span.
The 25-year-old played an integral role in the Capitals’ 2018 Stanley Cup victory, becoming the first rookie in franchise history to score a playoff short-handed goal, and the first Capitals rookie to record two straight multi-point games in the post-season.
Stephenson registered five goals and six assists in 64 games with Washington last season.
