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.
Very happy that old guy finally scored. It was great. You see the excitement on his face. I remember when I scored my first goal and it's just such a great feeling. Anytime you can help contribute to a team win it's a lot of fun.
