WASHINGTON — The Washington Capitals have placed defenseman Jeff Schultz on waivers and re-signed defenseman Tomas Kundratek to a two-year contract extension.

The Capitals made the moves Tuesday. They are expected to try to buy out the final year of Schultz’s contract if he clears waivers as of noon Wednesday.

The 27-year-old Schultz was set to enter the final year of a four-year, $11 million deal. He led the league with a plus-50 plus-minus rating in 2009-10 but was a healthy scratch for much of last season, appearing in only 26 games.

Schultz asked to be traded earlier this year once he realized his playing time was diminishing under new coach Adam Oates.

The 23-year-old Kundratek had one goal and six assists in 25 games with the Capitals last season.
