WASHINGTON (AP) - The Washington Capitals re-signed centre Darcy Verot to a one-year contract Friday.
Verot played in 37 games last season for the Capitals, leading the team with 135 penalty minutes while earning two assists. He also appeared in 28 games for Portland of the American Hockey League, recording three goals and five assists.

“The most terrifying fact about the universe is not that it is hostile, but that it is indifferent. If we can come to terms with this indifference and accept the challenges of life within the boundaries of death, our existence as a species can have genuine meaning and fulfillment. However vast the darkness, we must supply our own light.” - Stanley Kubrick
He goes high on a lot of his hits, and instead of bracing for a hit, he generally throws his stick or elbow in the way, towards the other guy's head.
You have to admire his guts. He's going to get "his" from Brashear or Domi sooner rather than later, but he doesn't seem to want to let up. I think he knows what's going to keep him in the NHL, if anything.
