Capitals general manager George McPhee said Volpatti signed a deal that will see him get paid $550,000 in 2013-14 and $600,000 in 2014-15.

The 28-year-old Revelstoke native has scored one goal and one assist in 31 games with Washington and Vancouver this season, to go along with 33 penalty minutes.

The 6’0″ 215-pound Volpatti has five points and 86 penalty minutes in 69 career NHL games.
