Marcus Johansson set to sign, too? (Updated)

Update: The Caps did indeed announce that they've signed Johansson to a three-year, entry-level deal.

The Caps' 2009 first-round draft pick -- and future second-line center -- Marcus Johansson just walked into Kettler Capitals Iceplex flanked by his agent.

The team has not said anything official regarding this morning's announcement(s). But it certainly looks like it's possible the Caps will announce the signing of two Swedes in a few minutes.

Stay tuned.

We got the "hometown discount".

D.C. is only a hop, skip and a jump away from Gavle.

Considering Malkin gets paid 8.7 million a year. Backstrom really gave the Caps a good hometown discount. He's is going to develop into one of the top 5 centers in the league if he hasn't already. With players like Kovy asking for OV money in free agency, Caps fans should be happy Backstrom signed here at 10 years at a very reasonable rate. Great day for Caps fans everywhere. Not to mention MoJo signed and it is a good sign he wants to play in NA next season.
