O'Brien signed a one-year, two-way contract extension with the Capitals on Friday. The total value of the deal is $1.3 million.

O'Brien avoids arbitration by penning this contract. The depth center has been limited to 17 NHL games since the start of the 2014-15 campaign, but the Capitals lost Jay Beagle to the Canucks through free agency, which seemingly brings O'Brien one step closer to a notable role at the top level.
