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

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

He is, in my opinion, one of the best defensemen in the NHL and continuing to grow. I think his game, from an offensive standpoint, he continues to drive our offense... I think there's still tremendous upside for Oliver.

— Coyotes GM Don Maloney on defenseman Oliver Ekman-Larsson
