Pittsburgh (KDKA)- GM Ray Shero is bringing back a name from the Penguins past.

The team announced today the signing of forward Richard Park to a one-year contract.

Park’s contract is a two-way deal worth $550,000 at the NHL level.

The 35-year old Park began his NHL career with Pittsburgh, appearing in 58 regular-season games and four postseason contests between 1994-97 after the Penguins made him a second-round pick (50th overall) in the 1994.

Park played last season with Geneve Servette of the Swiss National League where he tallied 34 points (15G-19A) in 47 games.

During his most recent NHL season with the New York Islanders in 2009-10, Park recorded a career-high 22 assists and tied the second-highest point total (31) of his career in 81 contests. Park tallied 10-plus goals and 30-plus points in three of his four seasons with New York prior to heading to Switzerland.

Park is a solid penalty killer and will compete for a spot on the third or fourth line.
