Forward Mike Knuble is heading to his fifth NHL team.

The 36-year-old has signed an two-year contract with the Washington Capitals worth $2.8 million a season.

"Backstrom and Ovechkin are going to have the puck a lot and we need someone who will go to the net," Capitals GM George McPhee said, indicating that Knuble could be riding shotgun with Washington's top scorers.

The 6-3, 230 pound forward has played for the Detroit Red Wings, New York Rangers, Boston Bruins and the Flyers.

Last season with the Flyers, Knuble had 27 goals and 20 assists in 82 games.
