Viktor Kozlov inked a 2 year, $5 million deal with the Washington Capitals joining fellow new FI Tom Poti on that seemingly rebuilding franchise. Kozlov came out of his career slump to score 51 points on 25 goals and 26 assists in 81 games last season with the Isles. His 25 goals were a new career high, notable among them being the 4-goal night he had in December against the New York Rangers. In 749 career games, with San Jose, Florida, New Jersey and the Isles, Kozlov has 169 goals and 273 assists for 442 points. We wish Kozlov the best in his new home.
