Roundup: Caps re-sign Hamill, Rangers get Segal

Couple of minor signings to pass your way…

Washington keeps Hamill

The Washington Capitals have agreed to terms with RFA forward Zach Hamill on a one-year deal. Financial terms were not disclosed.

Hamill, taken eighth overall at the 2007 draft, was acquired by Washington in late May in a deal that saw Chris Bourque — son of Bruins legend Ray Bourque — go to Boston in exchange.

The 23-year-old Hamill never found his nice with the Bruins, appearing in just 20 career NHL games and registering four assists. He was a prolific scorer in junior, though, and may have an easier time finding minutes at center in Washington than he did in Boston (where he was buried behind David Krejci, Patrice Bergeron, Tyler Seguin and Rich Peverley.)

New York signs Segal

The Rangers have inked former Tampa Bay Lightning winger Brandon Segal to a deal.

Segal, 28, has played over 100 NHL contests for the Lighting, Kings and Stars — in 2009-10, he set career highs in games (44) goals (six), assists (six) and points (12).

It seems unlikely he’ll crack the Rangers lineup this season and looks to be bound for AHL Connecticut.
