The Pittsburgh Penguins signed 2010 draft pick Bryan Rust to a two-year, entry-level contract

Bryan Rust signed a two-year entry-level contract with the Pittsburgh Penguins on Tuesday that will begin with the 2014-15 season.

The right wing, a third-round selection (No. 80) in the 2010 NHL Draft by the Penguins, recently completed his senior season at the University of Notre Dame. An alternate captain, the 21-year-old scored a career-high 17 goals and had 33 points as the Fighting Irish qualified for the NCAA Tournament.

In four years at Notre Dame, Rust had 43 goals, 54 assists and 97 points in 161 games.

Quote of the Day

Not only is it a great idea, but if you don't [start using analytics] you're going to fall behind. You have to be on the cutting edge. It was [Arizona Coyotes assistant general manager] Darcy Regier who said, 'If you didn't invent it, you have to be the second- or third-best copier, because if you're fourth or fifth you've got no chance.'

— Detroit Red Wings coach Mike Babcock on his interest in advanced statistical analysis
