PITTSBURGH, Pa. - The Pittsburgh Penguins signed free-agent forward Steve Downie to a one-year, $1 million deal Wednesday, a day after signing four players.

The 27-year-old Downie had four goals, 20 assists and 106 penalty minutes last season in 62 games for Colorado and Philadelphia. Downie has 59 goals, 103 assists and 766 penalty minutes in 336 regular-season games in seven seasons with Philadelphia, Tampa Bay and Colorado.

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.
