ARLINGTON, Va. - The Washington Capitals have signed centre Christian Hanson to a one-year contract.

The 25-year-old played most of last season with the Toronto Maple Leafs' American Hockey League affiliate, collecting 13 goals and 34 points in 58 games.

He was called up for six games with the Leafs last season—his third with the club after being signed as an un-drafted free agent in 2009.

The 6-4, 228-pound forward has three goals, six assists in 42 career NHL games.

The Venetia, Penn., native is the son of Dave Hanson, who is best known for playing one of the Hanson Brothers in the 1977 hockey comedy "Slap Shot."
