Penguins sign Eaton to one-year contract

The Pittsburgh Penguins have signed defenseman Mark Eaton, a member of their 2009 Stanley Cup championship team, to a one-year contract.

The 35-year-old Eaton had spent time this season with the team's American Hockey League affiliate in Scranton/Wilkes-Barre, and more recently was practicing with Pittsburgh in the hopes of earning an NHL contract.

Eaton has career totals of 24 goals, 85 points and 238 penalty minutes in 627 career games for the Flyers, Predators, Penguins and Islanders. He has four goals and 10 points in 60 Stanley Cup Playoff games. All four of those goals came during the Penguins' 2009 Cup run.

Quote of the Day

We think that Randy is a very good coach. Our players think that Randy is a very good coach. We think that he's going to get the most out of this group. With the addition of the two assistants, a bit of a different dynamic, we're very comfortable that this is a quality coaching staff that's going to maximize the potential of this team.
