Pittsburgh (KDKA)- In the last couple of weeks, experts have been saying the Penguins needed to add some grit to their lineup.

Pens GM Ray Shero has signed a player that may take care of that need.

The team announced that they’ve signed forward Steve MacIntyre to a one-year contract.

MacIntyre’s contract is a two-way deal worth $600,000 at the NHL level.

MacIntyre, 6-foot-5, 250 pounds, spent the 2010-11 season with the Edmonton Oilers, collecting one assist and 93 penalty minutes in 34 games. Both his games played and penalty minute totals were NHL career highs for the 30-year-old forward.

The 2010-11 season was MacIntyre’s second tour of duty with Edmonton. MacIntyre broke into the NHL with Edmonton in 2008-09, collecting two goals and 40 penalty minutes in 22 games.

MacIntyre has also played in the NHL with the Florida Panthers.
