The Pittsburgh Penguins avoided arbitration with defenseman Roberto Bortuzzo, agreeing Wednesday to a two-year, $1.2 million contract.

Bortuzzo had two goals and four points in 15 games for the Penguins last season.

A third-round pick (No. 78) by the team in the 2007 NHL Draft, he has four points in 21 NHL games, all with the Penguins, in the past two seasons.

Quote of the Day

You get the right whistles at the right times, you can leave him out there. He's a beast when it comes to being on the ice. I thought [Saturday] he was a big man. That first period, he did that lateral cut and it was like three bowling pins bounced off him. There's not too many guys that can do that.
