Penguins sign Kostopoulos to two-way deal

The Pittsburgh Penguins have signed right wing Tom Kostopoulos to a one-year, two-way contract.

The deal is worth $600,000 at the NHL level. Kostopoulos will be placed on waivers at noon ET on Tuesday, and if he clears will be assigned to Scranton/Wilkes-Barre of the American Hockey League.

The 34-year-old was taken by the Penguins in the seventh round of the 1999 NHL Draft and broke in with the team during the 2001-02 season. He has also played for the Los Angeles Kings, Montreal Canadiens, Carolina Hurricanes and Calgary Flames, and has 60 goals, 156 points and 705 penalty minutes in 615 games.

They said, 'You're going to love the city. It's smaller than Philadelphia, but you're going to love it. You're going to love the fans. Just watching the playoffs last year, the fans seemed louder there than they did anywhere. I'm really excited about that.
