  1. PITTSBURGH (AP) The Pittsburgh Penguins weren’t about to let Patric Hornqvist get away.The two-time defending Stanley Cup champions signed the 31-year-old forward to a five-year extension Tuesday that runs through the 2022-23 season. The deal has an average annual value of $5.3 million.He was set to become a free agent this summer but didn’t hesitate on an extension once he was approached by general manager Jim Rutherford [url=http://www.bruinsshoponline.com/authentic-brad-marchand-jersey]http://www.bruinsshoponline.com/authentic-brad-marchand-jersey[/url] , who rarely makes such a move in the middle of the year.”This is the city I want to be in and I’m really happy to stay here five more years,” Hornqvist said. ”We always have a chance to win and we have a great core group in here, so that was obviously the key situation for me, too.”Hornqvist has been a vital part of Pittsburgh’s title runs. He scored the series-clinching goal in Game 6 of the 2017 Stanley Cup finals against Nashville.”He’s been such a big part of this team and what it’s been able to accomplish the last couple seasons,” coach Mike Sullivan said. ”He brings so much energy and he’s a positive guy. He brings a dimension to our dressing room that is unique.”To the ice as well.Hornqvist plays a physical game, often putting his body in front of the net to grab loose pucks or create room for Sidney Crosby, Evgeni Malkin and Phil Kessel. Hornqvist has 17 goals and 15 assists for the Penguins this season entering Tuesday night’s game against New Jersey. He was acquired in a 2014 trade with the Predators and has 85 goals and 93 assists with the Penguins.Hornqvist said he’s glad the process is over so he can focus on hockey. The Penguins began Tuesday in third place in the tight Metropolitan Division. The signing also means a core that includes Hornqvist [url=http://www.bruinsshoponline.com/authentic-david-krejci-jersey]http://www.bruinsshoponline.com/authentic-david-krejci-jersey[/url] , Crosby and Malkin is under contract well into the next decade.”I think we have something great here,” Hornqvist said. ”Just have to go out here and prove it.”NOTES: Center Derick Brassard, acquired in a deal with Ottawa last week, skated with the team Tuesday morning and is scheduled to play against the Devils. … goalie Matt Murray is out indefinitely with a concussion after taking a puck to the helmet in practice Monday.— WASHINGTON (AP) The Capitals have signed center Lars Eller to a $17.5 million, five-year contract extension.Eller will count $3.5 million against the salary cap through the 2022-23 season. General manager Brian MacLellan announced the deal Saturday.The 28-year-old Dane was in the final year of his contract with the Capitals and would have become a free agent on July 1.”This club and this city has been a great fit for me personally, for my family,” Eller said. ”There’s just so many things that have been good about it. It’s been good for my career. I’ve found my game here [url=http://www.bruinsshoponline.com/authentic-jake-debrusk-jersey]Womens Jake DeBrusk Jersey[/url] , especially this year.”Eller has 11 goals and 17 assists for 28 points in 53 games this season, three points shy of his career high. In 576 NHL games with the St. Louis Blues, Montreal Canadiens and Capitals, Eller has 96 goals and 113 assists.The signing solidifies Washington at center. Eller has played on the third line the past two seasons behind centers Nicklas Backstrom and Evgeny Kuznetsov. Backstrom is signed through the 2019-20 season and Kuznetsov through 2024-25.”Everybody in the league is dying for centermen,” Capitals coach Barry Trotz said. ”And we have a lot of them. … Those guys are assets in the organization. Every good team, it doesn’t matter what sport, if you’re strong up the middle [url=http://www.bruinsshoponline.com/authentic-patrice-bergeron-jersey]Patrice Bergeron Jersey[/url] , you’ve got a chance.”Washington traded two second-round picks to Montreal for Eller at the 2017 draft. Eller grew frustrated during his six seasons with the Canadiens.The No. 13 overall pick in the 2007 draft by the Blues, Eller was traded to Montreal in 2010 and never settled on a role as he moved between center and wing and played up and down the top three lines.”I don’t like to go back to talk about it, but it was a different situation in Montreal,” Eller said. ”I have more stability here. I get to learn from some of the best players in the league looking at (Kuznetsov) and (Backstrom) every day.”Eller was one of three significant Capitals unrestricted free agents, along with center Jay Beagle and defenseman John Carlson.”Lars had a good year last year,” MacLellan said. ”This year, he’s taken his game probably up a notch. There’s a little more offense involved. He’s playing more second power play. He’s done really well and I anticipate it to be like that going forward.”MacLellan said Washington would do ”everything we can” to re-sign Carlson [url=http://www.officialwild.com/authentic-adidas-matt-read-jersey]Matt Read Jersey Womens[/url] , who ranks fourth in points among NHL defensemen (42), but wouldn’t comment on where those negotiations stand other than to say the two sides have had contract discussions.Eller was tempted by the chance to explore free agency before deciding the fit was too good in Washington, the search for more money elsewhere not worth the uncertainty that came with it.”In my case I’m only going to have one time to be (an unrestricted free agent) when I’m still in my 20s and that’s a once-in-a-lifetime opportunity,” Eller said.”But looking at the options, I wanted to stay here. It’s a good fit for me on the team. The team is going to be competitive – not just this year, but the next couple of years with the core that they have.”—
