Penguins, forward Nick Spaling agree to 2-year, $4.4-million contract

PITTSBURGH, Pa. - The Pittsburgh Penguins and restricted free agent forward Nick Spaling have agreed to a two-year contract worth $4.4 million.

The Penguins acquired Spaling and forward Patric Hornquist in a trade with Nashville in June that sent All-Star forward James Neal to the Predators.

The 25-year-old Spaling is coming off a career season in Nashville. He had 13 goals and 19 assists in 71 games.

Spaling has 40 goals and 44 assists in 297 regular-season games, all with the Predators.

Quote of the Day

Obviously he's been my favorite goalie since I grew up. He's kind of close to my hometown so I've been watching him my whole life. It's a pretty special moment for me to score two goals on Lundqvist in such an important game as this.
