Washington Capitals Add Goaltending Depth

The Washington Capitals have come to terms with veteran goaltender Craig Anderson on a one-year deal worth $700,000.

While some aren't surprised the team went out and signed a veteran with Braden Holtby leaving for Vancouver, it is a bit of a surprise he's on the Capitals' taxi-squad. This also isn't a given either. As we saw yesterday, a number of goalies were claimed on waivers and Anderson certainly could be snagged up.

Look for the Edmonton Oilers, New Jersey Devils, and Colorado Avalanche to take a peek Anderson's way and we'll have to wait until Thursday at noon to find out.

As for the Capitals, here's how their roster shapes up for opening night:
