The Washington Capitals re-signed forwards Garrett Pilon and Michael Sgarbossa along with defenseman Bobby Nardella on Thursday, all to two-year, $1.5 million contracts.

For Pilon and Nardella, the first year of the deal will be a two-way contract ($750,000 NHL and $110,000 AHL) and the second year will be a one-way $750,000 contract.

Under his contract, Sgarbossa will earn $750,000 NHL and $425,000 AHL in 2021-22, with the AHL salary rising to $500,000 in 2022-23.

The Capitals’ third-round pick in 2016, the 23-year-old Pilon made his NHL debut on May 8, 2021 against the Philadelphia Flyers.

He registered 16 points (four goals, 12 assists) in 14 games with the AHL’s Hershey Bears this season. Pilon has 85 points (32 goals, 53 assists) in 146 career games with Hershey.
