Aaron Volpatti has signed a two-year contract extension with the Washington Capitals, the team announced Wednesday morning.

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.

He was acquired by the Capitals after being placed on waivers by the Vancouver Canucks earlier this year. He has played mostly on the fourth line, though he did suit up briefly on the Capitals first line with Alexander Ovechkin and Nicklas Backstrom.

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