PITTSBURGH (KDKA) — Pens GM Ray Shero has one less unrestricted free agent to worry about.
The team has announced that they’ve signed forward Craig Adams to a two-year contract.
The contract has an average annual value of $675,000, and runs through the 2012-13 season.
The 34-year old was a role player and one of the team’s best penalty killers. Adams, who led the team’s forwards with 3:05 shorthanded minutes per game, helped Pittsburgh rank #1 in penalty killing.
Adams was originally claimed off waivers by Pittsburgh March 4, 2009.
