Evgeny Kuznetsov is committing to the Washington Capitals for the long haul.

The club signed the dynamic forward to an eight-year, $62.4-million contract Sunday.

He was a restricted free agent whose $7.8-million cap hit will be on the books through 2024-25.

Kuznetsov notched 19 goals and 59 points in his fourth season in the U.S. capital, and he’s two years removed from a 20-goal, 77-point campaign.

The 25-year-old joined the Capitals after spending five seasons with Traktor Chelyabinsk in the KHL.

Washington selected him 26th overall in 2010.
