Garrett Mitchell (36) Hershey Bears

Garrett-Mitchell

Heading into his fifth season, Washington keeps the speedy, aggressive skating forward for another 2-years inking him to an extension through 2016/2017.

He’s been the club’s assistant captain for the last two seasons and although his numbers dipped to half of what he was able to score in his sophomore campaign, he’s always a pesky presence on the ice.

The 23-year old also suffered a season-ending shoulder injury that required surgery and put him on the sidelines for the second half of the final year of his entry level deal but was still offered another shot with an additional year.

He will likely get the opportunity to prove what he can do in the NHL sooner than later.
