Veteran forward Wojtek Wolski won’t be back with the Washington Capitals next season as he has signed a contract to play in the Kontinental Hockey League.
The former first-round pick – No. 21 overall in the 2004 NHL Entry Draft — will join Torpedo Nizhni Novgorod.
The 27-year-old struggled to find his game in Washington after posting just four goals and nine points in 27 games. Moreover, Wolski was a healthy scratch in every game for the Caps in their first-round series loss to the New York Rangers.
In his eight-year NHL career, Wolski has totaled 267 points — 99 goals and 168 assists — in 451 games with the Colorado Avalanche, Phoenix Coyotes, Florida Panthers, Rangers ,and Capitals.
