It’s a 1y contract for NHL minimum (tho doubt he’ll be getting any of that) and a titch over AHL average salary. I saw the Bears a couple of times and never noticed Pinho tho he appeared in 72 games (garnering a whopping 8 points). A bit surprised the Caps use a NHL contract slot for him, but I know little. Be curious to hear what the actual pros of Pinho’s game are?
He's a solid defensive forward - a good 3rd/4th line option in Hershey with PK potential that could potentially translate to the NHL level as a 4th liner (after a couple more years of minor pro). He did score the series clincher in the 1st round for the Bears against the Sound Tigers for whatever that is worth.
