The Pittsburgh Penguins announced on Friday that they have re-signed former Penguin Rob Scuderi to a four-year, free agent contract worth $13.5 million.
The 34 year-old Scuderi left the Pens four years ago to sign with the Los Angeles Kings. A defenseman by trade, he has 86 points (7 goals, 79 assists) in 585 National Hockey League games. Some of his best numbers came with Pittsburgh in 2008-2009, when he tallied 16 points, and finished with a plus-23 rating. This past season, in 48 games with the Kings, Scuderi recorded 12 points (1 goal, 11 assists).
The Penguins also announced Friday that forward Craig Adams signed a two-year contract extension with an average $700,000 annual value. Adams scored nine points (3 goals, 6 assists) last season. He has 142 points (49 goals, 93 assists) in 799 NHL games.
Also Friday, the NHL announced that forward Jarome Iginla had left the Penguins to sign a one-year, free-agent deal with the Eastern Conference champions, the Boston Bruins. Sources say Iginla is guaranteed $1.8 million, and could earn up to six million.
