Penguins add forwards Glass, Holzapfel

The Pittsburgh Penguins added a pair of depth forwards Sunday afternoon, replacing Arron Asham with Tanner Glass on a two-year deal and Riley Holzapfel on a one-year, two-way pact, the team announced Sunday.

Glass' deal has an average annual value of $1.1 million per season. Known as an agitator, Glass had five goals and 16 points in 78 games -- all career highs -- last season for the Winnipeg Jets. He also had a team-high 248 hits, and will likely slide into Asham's spot on the fourth line after he signed a two-year deal with the New York Rangers.

Holzapfel had 16 goals and 37 points in 57 games split between two American Hockey League teams. The 23-year-old was a second-round pick in the 2006 NHL Draft.

Playing for my favorite team growing up, I've probably scored that goal a million times in my driveway. It feels good to actually do it in real life.
