PITTSBURGH (AP) -The Pittsburgh Penguins signed left wing Brett Sterling to a two-way contract Saturday that will pay him $500,000 if he plays in the NHL next season.

The 26-year-old Sterling had two goals and two assists in 19 career games with the Atlanta Thrashers, who drafted him in the fifth round in 2003.

Sterling has played most of his career with Atlanta's top farm club, Chicago of the AHL, scoring 144 goals and 263 points in 254 games.

Quote of the Day

He's, believe it or not, actually one of my favorite guys, and I've ended up trading him twice. I appreciate what he's done. He was one year away from being an unrestricted free agent, and I felt with this opportunity, that it was a chance that we were able to get somebody for him in Nick Bonino and Adam Clendening.
