The Washington Capitals have re-signed forward Marcus Johansson to a one-year, $1.1-million contract, the team announced Wednesday.

Johansson, who was drafted by the Capitals in the first round of the 2009 NHL Draft, was re-acquired from the Seattle Kraken for forward Daniel Sprong, a 2022 fourth-round pick and a 2023 sixth-round pick on March 21.

The 6-foot-1, 203-pound forward played seven seasons with Washington from 2010-17, compiling 290 points in 501 games. Johansson is one of 30 players in franchise history to play 500 games for the Capitals.

Johansson recorded nine goals and 20 assists in 69 games with Washington and the Seattle Kraken last season.
