PITTSBURGH (KDKA) — The Pittsburgh Penguins have signed forward Tanner Glass to a 2-year deal worth $1.1 million per year.

Glass, 28, is a native of Saskatchewan and has played five NHL seasons with the Florida Panthers, Vancouver Canucks and the Winnipeg Jets.

Glass had five goals, 11 assists and 73 penalty minutes in 78 games with Winnipeg last year.

Before the NHL, he played four seasons of collegiate hockey at Dartmouth.

Meanwhile, the Penguins and captain Sidney Crosby have made it official.

Earlier this week, the team announced that the two sides agreed to a 12-year, $104.4 million extension that will keep Crosby in Pittsburgh through the 2024-25 season.

The team announced Sunday afternoon that the deal has now been signed.

The deal could not officially be signed until Sunday based on the current collective bargaining agreement.

The Penguins also continued to bolster their minor league system by signing a local product. Defenseman Dylan Reese is a native of Upper St. Clair.

The contract is for one year and is a two-way deal worth $600,000 at the NHL level.

According to the Penguins, Reese is now the fourth player from the Pittsburgh youth hockey system to play fro the Penguins organization since 2003.
