Penguins sign Dupuis to one-year contract

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.

Quote of the Day

He seemed to thrive on his own and didn't really need any push from me. I certainly don't want to get in the way of the coaches. You see how that goes sometimes. I never really worried about it and just enjoyed the ride.
