Penguins sign goalie Marc-Andre Fleury to US$35-million, seven-year contract @NHLdotcom

PITTSBURGH - The Pittsburgh Penguins have ensured their No. 1 goalie will be around for a long time.

Marc-Andre Fleury signed a US$35-million, seven-year contract with the Penguins on Thursday, a day after star centre Evgeni Malkin and key defenceman Brooks Orpik also signed long-term deals with Pittsburgh.

The Penguins also added a pair of veteran wingers after losing star Marian Hossa. Pittsburgh signed Miro Satan to a $3.5-million, one-year deal and also Ruslan Fedotenko to a $2.25-million, one-year deal. Both unrestricted free agents played for the New York Islanders last season.

The 23-year-old Fleury was a restricted free agent although the Penguins selected him for salary arbitration in June to prevent other teams from giving him an offer sheet. Fleury went 19-10-2 with a 2.33 goals-against average and .921 save percentage last regular season, missing close to three months with a high ankle sprain. He stepped it up in the playoffs, going 14-6 with a 1.97 GAA and .933 save percentage.

Satan, 33, had 41 points (16-25) in 80 games last season while Fedotenko, 29, had 33 points (16-17) in 67 games.
