ARLINGTON, Va. - Defenceman Dmitry Orlov signed a $4 million, two-year contract extension with the Washington Capitals.

Orlov was suspended by the NHL for two games this month for boarding Philadelphia Flyers forward Brayden Schenn. Orlov launched into Schenn during the third period of a March 2 game, drawing a major penalty that helped the Flyers rally from a 4-2 deficit for a 5-4 overtime victory.

The 22-year-old Orlov will make $1.75 million next season, and $2.25 million in 2015-16. He has three goals, six assists and 19 penalty minutes in 38 games this season with Washington.

The Capitals announced the deal Thursday.
