LANDOVER, Md. -- The Washington Capitals announced Monday that they and winger Bob Kelly have 'mutually agreed to terminate Kelly's contract.'
Acting General Manager Roger Crozier said the NHL club took the action because Kelly has not played in some time and the team wants to go with younger players.
Kelly, 32, scored 26 goals and had 36 assists for the Capitals last year after being acquired from the Philadelphia Flyers in August 1980.
He played for the Flyers for 10 years, including two years on Stanley Cup champion teams.
