NHL Free Agency 2012: Ryan Stoa Signs 1-Year Deal With Washington Capitals

Ryan Stoa, the 34th overall pick of the Colorado Avalanche in the 2005 NHL Draft, has agreed to a one-year, two-way deal with the Washington Capitals. Despite being a second-round pick, Stoa only played 37 games for the Avalanche in his career with the franchise. Twelve of those came during the 2009-2010 season, and the other 25 came in the 2010-2011 season, with Stoa tallying two goals and two assists. In his pro career, the winger has collected seven points.

Stoa spent all of last season in the AHL with the Lake Erie Monsters, where he tallied 16 goals and 20 assists in 75 games. At 6-foot-3 and 200 pounds, Stoa does have good size for a forward, and the Capitals are banking on there still being some potential left to be extracted.
