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

For six months, it's a really good accomplishment. But as soon as April [11, the end of the regular season] comes around, no one thinks about the regular season anymore. For six months, it's a real battle to get into the playoffs in the NHL these days. There are a lot of good teams, and it takes consistency over a long time.
