The Washington Capitals have re-signed defenseman Jack Hillen to a two-year, $1.4 million contract extension, one of several moves made by the team Tuesday. Hillen will earn $700,000 in both the 2013-14 and 2014-15 seasons. He has played in 10 games this year after missing 25 with an injury. The Capitals also assigned defensemen Tomas Kundratek and Dmitry Orlov to Hershey of the AHL and activated defenseman John Erskine from injured reserve. Erskine had been out since March 9 with an upper body injury. The Capitals signed free agent defenseman Nate Schmidt to a two-year, entry-level contract beginning this season. Schmidt comes from the University of Minnesota. The Capitals made a trade involving minor leaguers, acquiring left wing Dane Byers from the Edmonton Oilers for defenseman Garrett Stafford.
