The Washington Capitals re-signed restricted free agent forward Jakub Vrana to a two-year, $6.7 million contract on Tuesday.

Vrana, 23, is coming off his best season, with career highs in goals (24) and assists (23). The left winger was third on the Capitals in goals and sixth among forwards in assists.

"Jakub is a highly skilled player with a tremendous upside and is a big part of our future," general manager Brian MacLellan said in a statement. "We are pleased with his development the past two seasons and are looking forward for him to continue to develop and reach his full potential with our organization."

Vrana has 40 goals and 40 assists in 176 games with the Washington over the past three seasons. The Capitals selected the Czech with the 13th overall pick in the 2014 draft.

He competed for the Czech Republic at the 2019 IIHF World Championships, recording four goals and an assist in nine games.
