PITTSBURGH — The Pittsburgh Penguins signed defenseman Reid McNeill to a three-year, entry-level deal Tuesday.

McNeill, 20, was drafted by the Penguins in the sixth round of the 2010 draft and spent last season playing with the Barrie Colts of the Ontario Hockey League. He is 6-foot-3, 200 pounds and plays a very defensive-minded style of hockey.

Before playing with Barrie, McNeill spent two years playing for the London Knights.

In three seasons in the OHL, McNeill played in 166 games and registered 23 points (seven goals, 16 assists). He has 162 penalty minutes and is a career plus-19 in the OHL.
