WASHINGTON (CBSDC) – The Capitals have let another Free Agent walk.

Matt Hendricks, 32, signed a 4-year deal with the Nashville Predators on Friday, valued at $1.85 million per season, according to Stephen Whyno.

Hendricks was originally drafted by Nashville out of high school. He came to Washington on a one-year deal in 2010, before eventually signing an extension to remain with the team for another two years.

Hendricks had 8 points for the Caps in the lockout-shortened 48-game 2012-13 season, with 5 goals and 3 assists, but it’s his versatility the team will miss the most. He frequently filled in on the penalty kill and top lines when necessary, and his shootout prowess earned him the nickname “The Paralyzer.”

He also wasn’t afraid to drop the gloves, as seen in the photo above.

Mike Ribeiro also departed from the Caps roster, agreeing to terms on a 4-year deal with Phoenix. The team also placed Jeff Schultz on waivers earlier in the week.
