By: Mike Vukovcan

PITTSBURGH (KDKA) – Pittsburgh Penguins defenseman Deryk Engelland has gone from a guy just trying to make the team to a guy with long-term security.

The Penguins have announced that they’ve signed Engelland to a three-year contract extension.

The new contract reportedly will start next season and will run through 2013-14. The deal is reportedly worth $566,700 annually over the term of the contract.

In his first full season with the Pens, Engelland has recorded five points and a team-leading 76 penalty minutes. He’s also established himself as one of the toughest players in the NHL.

With the signing of Engelland, the Pens have now signed all of their defensemen to contracts beyond this season.
