Capitals re-sign Madison Bowey leaving Tom Wilson the lone remaining RFA

The Capitals re-signed one of their lone remaining restricted free agents, but it's not the big-name you were waiting for. Madison Bowey signed a two-year deal with Washington in a deal that will carry a $2 million cap hit, the team announced Thursday.

Bowey, 23, did not start last season with Washington, but was called up and made his NHL debut on Oct. 14 due to an injury to Matt Niskanen. He played in 51 games last season and tallied 12 assists.

With Bowey's signing, Tom Wilson remains the team's only remaining restricted free agent.
