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.

Quote of the Day

The groove of being behind a bench is going to be interesting at first, but thank God we have a few exhibition games to get rid of those cobwebs. Overall the excitement of it all and the freshness and coming back refreshed, all those things are going to be assets. If [the players] come ready to give their best effort in practice and games, good things are going to happen. I'm always looking for results. It's not always on the scoreboard. It's winning and building something.
