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

We have no doubt how he can play. You don't, with four teams that are left, you're not getting here without good goaltending. All great goalies left, and [Bishop] is a top-tier goaltender in this league and he's shown it.

— Lightning coach Jon Cooper on goalie Ben Bishop, who shut out the Rangers in Game 5
