The Capitals signed defenseman Patrick Wey, a Mt. Lebanon native, to a two-year, entry-level contract beginning in 2013-14.

The 6-foot-3, 210-pound defenseman recently completed his senior season at Boston College, recording career highs in points (13), assists (12), games played (37, tied) and penalty minutes (54) and registered a plus-14 rating.

Wey helped Boston College to a 22-12-4 record and a berth in the NCAA Tournament. He was named a 2013 second-team Hockey East all-star and named Hockey East's 2013 Best Defensive Defenseman.

In 133 career games with Boston College, Wey collected 33 points (four goals, 29 assists) and 147 penalty minutes. He helped Boston College win the NCAA championship in 2011-12 and tallied one goal and three assists in four tournament games.

Wey was drafted by Washington in the fourth round (115th overall) in the 2009 NHL Entry Draft.

We follow the same standards for taste as the daily newspaper. A few things we won't tolerate: personal attacks, obscenity, vulgarity, profanity (including expletives and letters followed by dashes), commercial promotion, impersonations, incoherence, proselytizing and SHOUTING. Don't include URLs to Web sites.

We do not edit comments. They are either approved or deleted. We reserve the right to edit a comment that is quoted or excerpted in an article. In this case, we may fix spelling and punctuation.

We appreciate it when readers and people quoted in articles or blog posts point out errors of fact or emphasis and will investigate all assertions. But these suggestions should be sent via e-mail. To avoid distracting other readers, we won't publish comments that suggest a correction. Instead, corrections will be made in a blog post or in an article.
