The Pittsburgh Penguins announced Thursday the team had signed forward Philippe Dupuis to a one-year contract. Terms of the deal were not released, but ESPN.com is reporting the two-way contract will pay Dupuis $600,000 at the NHL level and $105,000 at the AHL level.

Dupuis, a 27-year-old center, went without a point in 30 games with the Toronto Maple Leafs last season, but had 15 goals and 16 assists in 42 games with the Toronto Marlies of the American Hockey League.

He has six goals and 12 assists in 116 NHL games with the Avalanche and Maple Leafs.

I've been getting frustrated lately, and the only thing keeping me sane was the team winning and other people stepping up and scoring. Then you just kind of let it go and realize you can end the series with one shot, that frustration goes away for a brief moment, and that's what happened.
