The Washington Capitals have kept veteran forward Tom Wilson from becoming a free agent next year after the club signed the 29-year-old to a seven-year, US$45.5-million extension. The new contract, which will kick in for the 2024-25 season, will have Wilson playing for the Capitals through 2031. Team general manager Brian MacLellan said that the contract extension is a testament of his work ethic and leadership. MacLellan expressed hope the new deal will motivate Wilson to continue improving and help the team return to the Stanley Cup. The 6-foot-4, 220-pound winger began his NHL career with the Capitals in the 2012-13. He has 325 points in 763 regular-season and playoff games, including a career-best 52 in 2021-22.

Last season, Terry registered 23 goals and 38 assists in 70 games. He posted a career-high 67 points in the 2021-22 season, which was highlighted by a 16-game points streak.
