The Washington Capitals signed right wing Joel Ward to a four-year deal Friday and inked defenseman Roman Hamrlik to a two-year contract.

Ward's deal is worth a reported $12 million, while Hamrlik's is said to be for $7 million.

Ward, who spent the past three seasons with the Nashville Predators, has 40 goals and 59 assists in 241 career NHL games.

The 30-year-old shined in the playoffs this past season, leading Nashville with seven goals and six assists in just 12 games.

Hamrlik, 37, has played 18 seasons with five teams, including the past four years with the Montreal Canadians. He posted five goals and 34 points with a plus-six rating for the Canadians last season.

The Capitals didn't release financial details of either contract, but TSN of Canada reported terms of the deals.
