AT WASHINGTON When: 4 PST. Where: Verizon Center. On the air: TV: FS West; Radio: 830. Records: Ducks 24-22-7, Capitals 34-12-6. Record vs. Capitals (2008-09): 0-1-0. Update: This is the second game of a back-to-back on what is the Ducks' longest trip of the season, a journey that next heads to Tampa Bay and Florida. The Ducks have Saku Koivu back, and Teemu Selanne could soon return as well. But the Capitals, led by Alexander Ovechkin, are one of the hottest teams in the league and will be going for their eighth victory in a row. -- Debbie Goffa

The Ducks on Tuesday signed first-round draft pick Shea Theodore to a three-year entry-level contract. The 18-year-old from British Columbia has an assist in three preseason games with the Ducks and led the team in ice time Sunday against Colorado, with 22:06. Theodore notched 19 goals with 31 assists for Seattle of the Western Hockey League last season. Theodore, picked 26th overall in the NHL draft, is due to earn $925,000 annually in the NHL and $70,000 on an American Hockey League roster during his contract, which runs through the 2015-16 season.

1 The goaltending competition between Jean-Sebastien Giguere and Jonas Hiller will have a ripple effect. If Hiller prevails, the Ducks will have to ask Giguere to waive his no-trade clause because they can't take a $6-million salary cap hit this season and next for a backup. He could be attractive to teams whose goalies are hurt or struggling. 2 Their defense lost its meanness when they traded Chris Pronger and lost Francois Beauchemin to free agency. James Wisniewski can level people, but he can't be the only one. Luca Sbisa is an up-and-comer, but he's only 19 and has 39 games' NHL experience.

The Ducks on Sunday re-signed left wing Matt Beleskey to a two-year contract extension worth $2.7 million, a hockey official familiar with the deal reported. Beleskey, 25, scored 13 points (eight goals) last season, spending minimal time on the first line with stars Ryan Getzlaf and Corey Perry while also participating as a physical presence willing to scrap with opponents. Beleskey led the club with 103 hits and was second in penalty minutes, and on the heels of a disappointing first-round exit against Detroit in the Stanley Cup playoffs, Ducks' General Manager Bob Murray said physical play was part of the solution to improvement.
